DVD impression




Additional comments DVD-Video featuring impressions of Remembrance Day 2009. The Royal British Legion has organised an event called Silence in the Square, which aims to achieve a re-instatement of the traditional two minute silence held at 11 am on the 11th of November in remembrance of the fallen in the two twentieth-century World Wars and other conflicts. The ceremony is involving performances, readings and an invitation to the public to scatter poppies on the water of the fountains in central London’s Trafalgar Square. Mark Knopfler, with members of Only Men Aloud and the Trevor Roberts School choir, performed Remembrance Day in Trafalgar Square shortly before 11 am, 11th November, 2009. Only the vocals were live. Unfortunately, TV stations only showed part of Mark's performance. Luckily two fans also filmed the entire performance which are both featured on this DVD. The first audience recording has a sharp picture quality, but is shaky and the sound is not too well. Several parts are taken from YouTube movies, but the picture quality is fairly good. All in all, a nice impression of Remembrance Day 2009 with a special performance by Mark Knopfler.

The second digital official single Remembrance Day / Piper to the end will be released on the 9th November 2009 and the proceeds from this single will go to the Royal British Legion's Poppy Day Appeal.
