Every military person here, serving or otherwise will of course have their own way of marking the 2 minute silence however what about the civillian organisations and their employees? How well is this occasion supported by them? Any examples of a lack of support or discouragement of moving away from the production line for a few minutes and losing money? I'm sure tomoorw the tabloids will be full of shock storys however have any arrsers out there experienced it first hand. I'm on duty today over the period and of course, if possible will observe it, if not, I'll do it when I can. It will be fascinating to see if the department will go quiet or just carry on being the asylum in normally is however many staff here are ex forces so I suspect the former. I certainly hope so anyway. Was also glad to hear my daughters school observe it as well - theres hope yet. Hopefully, we civvies can redeem ourselves and show how much we appreciate your efforts.
