Message from the Royal British Legion

Every year since 1919, the nation has paused for two minutes in silence remembering the millions of men and women from Britain and the Commonwealth who have served and sacrificed in defence of our democracy and way of life. Remembrance unites our communities across faiths, cultures, and generations, and we want to inspire and encourage a new generation to take part in the two-minute silence and to engage with Remembrance in either traditional or new ways.  

Therefore, for this Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday, we have created a new ‘Pause’ film featuring spoken word artist Eno Mfon. This film both underlines why it is so important that we pause, breathe and reflect together for two-minutes as well as providing an engaging platform to discuss Remembrance and what it means to individuals and communities.

We would like to encourage you to share the Pause film with your family, friends, networks and community, so we all pause, breathe and reflect together this Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday.

You can find the Pause film on our website via this link: https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/stories/two-minute-silence
