SPECIAL GAZETTE. OF THE EAST AFRICA 24 ‘Ge S, PROTECTORATE. Published under the authority of His Excellency the Governor of Hast Africa. | sol. XXI.—No. 679} NAIROBI, November 7, 1919 [Paice 20 Cenrs] GOVERNMENT Notice No. 387. NOTICE. THE following gracious message addressed to all the peoples of the Empire by His Majesty the King, is published for general information :— November 6th, 1919. To aun My PEOPLE. Tuesday next, November, 11th, is the first anniversary of the Armistice which stayed the world wide carnage of the four preceding years and marked the Victory of Right and Freedom. I believe that My people in every part of the Empire fervently wish to perpetuate the memory of that great Deliverance and of those who laid down their lives to achieve it. To afford an opportunity for the universal expression of this feeling it is My desire and hope that at the hour when the Armistice came into force, the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, there may be, for the brief space of two minutes a complete suspension of all our normal activities. During that time, except in the rare cases where this may be impracticable, all work, all sound and all locomotion should cease, so that, in perfect stillness, the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the Glorious Dead. No elaborate organisation appears to be necessary. At a given signal, which can easily be arranged to suit the circumstances of each locality, I believe that we shall all gladly interrupt our business and pleasure whatever it may be and unite in this simple service of silence and remembrance. GEORGE, B.I.
