    Was fishing a league match today and I made sure that everyone stopped at 11 for 2 minutes, total respect.

    The fish showed such respect they disappeared on the stroke of eleven...and didn’t come back.

    I hope its is never allowed to be forgotten or the debt we owe to these people that gives us the freedoms that we have today. Some politicians of various types would no doubt wish it would all be best left in the past.
    I often think how would I have reacted if I were there at that time. I asked my dad who was called up in 1942 about it and he said you did because it was what was expected of you and you just went along with the rest.
    When I started my apprenticeship a lot of the older blokes served in the war and us younger ones used to go here they go again on about the old war stories but it was 20 years or so since the end of the war so to them still fresh.
    I cant imagine the total change in the way of life for them so to my mind they deserve every thing that comes with 11/11.

    I saw the Peter Jackson film on ww1 on the bbc last night. Blimey Charlie, that really does bring it home. It’s probably on the iplayer for those who may have missed it. Don’t have young children in the room, the dismembered bodied in some parts are graphic.

    I attended yesterday’s Remembrance in my town. It was quite touching this time as we had a fly past with a Dakota and two Spitfires.
    Found out later the Dakota had dropped 750,000 Poppies over The White Cliffs of Dover before coming to us.
    It looked like they were taking the old “bomb alley” flight path.

    I stopped today too.
    I moaned at Wondertex on Twitter for sending out a tweet during the silence :headwall:
