    Rip the fallen troops! Lest we forget!

    Hope everybody had 2 mins silence at 11. Its our duty as a mark of respect to show our appreciation of the thing they gave us which we precious most without even realising... FREEDOM! Always remembered,never forgotten. Rip our heroes!

    I made sure I was away from my desk and remembered those that have fallen, those that have and continue to serve Queen & country.

    didnt know anything about it and thought radio had broken. But i put 17 quid in a poppy tin on monday to cheer the pensioner up who was stood proudly in the pissing rain collecting. With people just walking past like he was invisible.

    My boss and I stopped at 11, so did everyone else on our floor too. Have known colleagues in the past to carry on working, using the phone etc during the 2 minutes, so disrespectful.

    Must admit i didnt stop at 11 as i was on the phone to germany and not sure if they have it over there

    but that doesnt stop me from buying my poppy (ive bought 4 for some reason) and ive been thinking about it all day

    so pretty sure that shows my respect

    best of luck to all the current serving guys and gals also, you all deserve recognition

    I was in B&Q at the time, and the whole place just stopped... Total silence.

    Neat the exit was a couple of old boys selling poppies, so I dropped a note in the box, shook them both by the hand, said a genuine "thanks you" to them and went about my day.

    Me and 4 colleagues stopped in our halfords store.

    Stupid bimbo of a woman looking at us, down the parts desk in complete silence, and wants a bulb fitting with a raised voice. Sure she did it deliberately.
