On the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, in the eleventh month of 2008
10,000 people joined The Royal British Legion at Trafalgar Square in London for a two minutes silence
to mark the 90th anniversary of the end of the Great War.

Following the Silence, guests were invited to scatter poppy petals in the fountains in a symbolic act of Remembrance as the Fron Choir sang a
hauntingly beautiful and very moving rendition of "Amazing Grace".
John Hurt read the poem "Do not stand at my grave and weep"
and Rolf Harris, Hayley Westenra and Blake gave performances to the assembled crowd.
