Swindon Stops To Remember On 11.11.11 

People pay their respects on unique Armistice Day - WATCH SWTV
 
At the eleventh hour this morning, Swindon town centre paused to remember those lost at war.
 
Hundreds of people stopped what they were doing to reflect and pay their respects on what is a unique day in Armistice Day history - 11.11.11.
 
Ceremonies took place in Wharf Green and at the cenotaph in Regent Street where soldiers past and present joined schoolchildren, local dignatories and passers-by in a silent two minute tribute.
