Disgusted with time set aside for two minutes of silence

The proper time to observe two minutes of silence is at 11 a.m.

Editor: I was disgusted that  the two minutes of silence at the Langley City Remembrance Day service took place at 10:45 a.m., instead of 11 a.m.

I lived through the Second World War, and we were always taught that the time to be silent was the 11th day of the 11th month, at the 11th hour.

It was not as Legion Branch 21 did it, at 10:45 a.m. This is the second year they have done the same thing. Perhaps someone should give them new watches and clocks, and maybe next year they can get it right.
