Two Minute Silence

11th November 2016

Imperial War Museum North, Trafford, Manchester

It was Armistice Day today

I was attending Imperial war museum north, in preparation for their Volunteer Celebration Choir with the Museum of Science and Industry and The Manchester Museum

But for Two minutes today – we stood in silence to remember those who fought and were lost in two world wars.

We then watched the film , Remembrance, which gave some poignant reminders of why the date is kept, to honour all those fallen in conflict.

The day before, I’d been at my spot in the museum – helping relatives of first world war soldiers remember their relations and share their stories with the nation on the Lives of the First World War Database
