Ecobhoy, a good suggestion, which I will follow up as soon as I can, as one of the very few interested in exactly how football got embroiled in a silence that never impinged on its schedule. I have only a very poor 2g connection here in the alps, so I need to get to the library in the nearest village for some precious broadband. I will report back eventually


You may find some of these helpful, I discovered that searching for “2 minute silence was more fruitful” (see http://www.thetwominutesilence.co.uk/history below)
There is also a contact on this site (might prove useful).





This one may be of assistance:-


Sponsored by the University of Huddersfield

Sponsored by the Museum Libraries Archives partnership

Sponsored by the Big Lottery Fund

About the Project

The Two Minute Silence project has received a £10,000 grant from the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) to trace the evolution and continuing relevance of the Remembrance Day silence, which marks its 90th anniversary in November 2009.

Through the personal experience and testimony of people, young and old, and from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, we hope to explore the continuing significance of the silence as a way of reflecting on global conflict and the value of peace.

The project will hopefully result in a publicly-accessible archive of original recorded material, a series of personally crafted two-minute reflections for this website, as well as for the University of Huddersfield Archives website, and for MLA Yorkshire’s My Learning website.


Guess what one of the search results found:-

6 Oct 2014 – On Ally McC asking for McLeod to be released for part of his Scotland ….. Can anyone tell me when this one minute silence became a feature of football ….. fans feel the need to justify intolerant behaviour in football grounds. 😆 :irony:

should be required to find caution [pronounced ‘cation’ as in ‘station’
Wow, that took me back to 1972 when I used to underwrite bonds of caution for the Insurance company I worked for at that time.
Was never involved with them since.
