2 Minute Silence for Armistice Day


The traditional two minute silence on armistice day has gone digital.

Armistice Day – or Remembrance Day – commemorates the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918. Many parts of the world take a moments silence at this time as a sign of respect for the millions who died in the war.

This year, as part of the Poppy Appeal, The Royal British Legion has released a two minute track – of silence – available to purchase on iTunes and at www.silentsingle.com

The 2 minute silence track is accompanied by a film, shot by Matthew Donaldson, which stars Andy Roddick, Mark Ronson and David Cameron, among others. You can see a preview of the film here.

For each sale on iTunes and at silentsingle.com, £1 is donated to the appeal.
