Two minutes’ silence being held

Have your say

A TWO Minutes’ Silence in remembrance of all those who have died in the service of their country will be observed in the Isle of Man at 11am tomorrow, which is Remembrance Sunday.

A two minutes’ silence was observed on Friday at 11am.

The chief secretary’s office says that for both days local authorities were requested to make arrangements in respect of their districts for giving warning of the precise moment at which the two minutes’ silence will start and end.

It has asked for the full co-operation of members of the public in the observance of the two minutes’ silence, including the suspension of all vehicular traffic between 11am and 11.02am on the designated days. It was especially hoped that drivers of vehicles will stop the engines of vehicles during the periods of silence.

Meanwhile, the Isle of Man National Service of Remembrance will be held at the Royal Chapel of St John at 3pm on Sunday. The governor and the chief minister will be present. Members of the public attending are asked to be seated by 2.45pm.
