Looks like a clear case of provocation to me.

@reasoning logic,
Wonder what happened to the three they hauled off?

@RABEL222,
I think that they were all released in this way!

@RABEL222,
A few questions, if anyone can answer them.

Why is there a curfew?

Why were the vets the only three arrested if there is a curfew?

What were the charges? The vets seemed to be the least vocal of all those who were there.

@Builder,
Whatever happened to Armistice Day? The 11th month, the 11day and the 11th hour.

This year, my town didn't even ring the bells at 11 am. So sad...

@Miller,
Might be too much for the sensitivities of the politically correct.

Come over her mate, 2 mins silence throughout the land, and before the England Spain game. Rows with Fifa over whether the England team could wear poppies on their shirts, letters from Prince William and the prime minister. In the end Fifa compromised and the England team were allowed to wear black armbands with poppies on them.

England won 1-0. Not bad against the World and European champions.

@izzythepush,
We call it Remembrance Day. It's a federal holiday. Poppies, parades and two minutes of silence at 11:00 am here as well.

So do we, it's not a holiday though, and unless the 11th falls on Sunday we tend to do it twice. Once on the 11th and once on the closest Sunday (Remembrance Sunday.)
