From Reynolds Illustrated News 11 November 1934, shows workers in an
 armaments factory pausing for two minutes silence.
 Similar views were expressed by others as in this poem in the New Statesman in 1932.

  The buzzer sounds, and, at our benches, we
  Stopping the lathes, two minutes silently
  Mourn for the lads who fell: then turn again
  To making arms for killing other men.
