This palindromic date won’t happen again for quite some time, a hundred years.  Of course its meaning would have been meaningless one hundred years ago.  So I hope you’ve all written it as many times as possible today.

I found myself in Victoria train station at the appointed time –

this woman bugled the Last Post…  Strange to see the whole of Victoria so still, the ant like behaviour ceased for those two minutes, and all the shops and trains fell silent.

This is one of the few things I request my children to observe each year.
