2 minutes silence observed at the 11th hour on 11th of November. 1100hrs local time in UK or 1100hrs Central European Time? "The Armistice was signed at 5am in a railway carriage in the Forest of Compiegne, France on November 11, 1918. Six hours later, at 11am, the war ended." IIRC everyone military observes it at 1100 local wherever, but I want to be sure because I cannot find an unambigous fact to shove down someones throat. Help.
