Two Minute Silence

Welcome to the Aberdare Branch of The Royal British Legion

Each year at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we observe a Two Minute Silence. Armistice Day on 11 November marks the end of the First World War and is a day to remember and honour those who have paid the price for our freedom.

WHY THE ACT OF REMEMBRANCE MATTERS

The people of Aberdare, still believe strongly in remembering those who fought not only in the World Wars, but the more than 12,000 British Servicemen and women killed or injured since 1945 in other conflicts.

The branch supports silences observed during both Remembrance Sunday services and on 11 November, Armistice Day, itself. The act of Remembrance rightly has a place in - and impact on - our lives, no matter which day of the week it might fall upon.

WHERE CAN I ATTEND A REMEMBRANCE SERVICE

When 11 November falls on a weekday, the branch hosts ‘Silence at the Cenotaph’. The event, held at the Cenotaph in Victoria Square, Aberdare, sees members of the public and veterans come together to remember the fallen and the future of the living.
