The home of Nottingham Forest and its patrons paid its respects to those who have lost their lives in conflict before kick-off on Saturday’s SkyBet Championship game. A minute’s silence accompanied by the playing of the last post was impeccably observed by both home and visiting Stoke supporters on the banks of the River Trent ahead of Remembrance Sunday. The Nottinghamshire Air Training Corps were invited onto the City Ground pitch ahead of kick off against The Potters. They were joined by players from both teams who stood around the centre circle as football paid its respects and remembered those in the Armed Forces who have lost their lives as a result of conflict. This weekend marks the centenary of Armistice, a commemoration of the end of World War One which lasted four years from 1914 to 1918. The shirts of each Forest player were adorned with a poppy, the sign of remembrance that has been used since 1921 to commemorate those from the military who have died in war. On Thursday evening the second of two Games of Remembrance held in Nottingham was played at the City Ground, whilst at the clubs training ground four trees were planted as a lasting legacy to the four Forest players who lost their lives during the Great World War.
