Two-minute pause to go with silence

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

I AM writ­ing to say how dis­ap­pointed I was after at­tend­ing the Me­mo­rial Ser­vice in Church Road, Hayes.

It was very well at­tended and there was a po­lice pres­ence there, so why oh why did they not stop the traf­fic from trav­el­ling along Church Road while ev­ery­one was stand­ing qui­etly to ob­serve the two-minute silence to hon­our our war dead.

Surely it is not too much to ask for peo­ple to give up two min­utes of their time to show their re­spect for those who died in the war. Also where was the Reveille to let ev­ery­one know the silence was over?

Hope­fully this can be re­solved for next year. J MERRETT Frog­more Av­enue Hayes
