Every year, we as a nation remember those who have fallen defending our way of life. At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, a Two Minute Silence is observed on Armistice Day, the day which marks the end of the First World War.
This year The Royal British Legion asked members of the Royal Photographic Society to go along and document the hard work of their collectors. The people who put in the hours around central London, collecting funds for the Poppy Appeal; helping the current and ex-serving personnel in terms of their welfare, comradeship, representation and remembrance.
I went along to Trafalgar Square in London for Silence in the Square, a morning of music and readings that preceded the 2 minute silence at 11am.
Below are a few of the portraits I captured of the veterans, volunteers, collectors and general public, plus a few moments that caught my eye.
Please have a look at my website for more shots from the morning here:
For me, the most rewarding part of the experience was meeting so many wonderful people, hearing their experiences and how important the work of The Royal British Legion is to them. Find out more about the their work and the charity here.
