State of Mind wanted to recognise Armistice Day 11 November today

At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month. The Two Minute Silence is observed on Armistice Day, the day which marks the end of the First World War.

The Royal British Legion has always supported the traditional Remembrance Sunday services and the customary Two Minute Silence on that day.

In 2014 Armistice Day falls on Tuesday 11 November.
