[29 OCT 98] RUGBY BOROUGH COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
2 Minute Silence - Firing Of Maroons - Wednesday 11 November 1998

Rugby Borough Council is supporting the Royal British Legion in reviving the traditions of a two minute silence at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of each year in remembrance of those that gave their lives for their country.

To signify the commencement and the end of the two minutes silence, the Council has arranged for the firing of maroons (loud rockets which can be heard over a radius of 3 miles) at 11.00am and 11.02am on Wednesday 11 November 1998 at the Rugby Recreation Ground.

The Mayor will be in attendance and representatives from the local branches of the Royal British Legion and other ex-service mens associations have been invited to be present.

The event is open to the public to attend. The Council plans to observe the two minute silence at the Town Hall and encourages other employers in the Borough to do likewise.
