Great turn out at the Cenotaph this year.

I don’t think the attendance had anything to do with Afghanistan or the mild weather but by the massive amount of media build up that’s been going on for the last few weeks. I was only thinking the other day why there’d been so much press build up this year and was it some kind of significant event / year.

The crowds appeared to be up everywhere. In Stockton-on-Tees, where I live now, there was a huge crowd. I was also in London on the 10th and 11th for the opening of the Field of Remembrance at Westminster and for Armistice Day itself and the crowds were very big. On Friday the 11th November we were slightly late getting to the Cenotaph and we acknowledged the 2 minutes silence at Victoria Station. Absolutely everyone stood still and observed the full 2 minutes. I got to the Cenotaph for 11.10am and couldn't get near it as there were still masses of people around.
