Remembrance Day is the day when those who perished in battle are honoured with a celebration of their bravery, and recognition of the price they paid for our freedom. We should observe it, each in our own way, but, ideally, not in the way some sections of the West Bromwich Albion supporters did before their match with Hull City at the weekend.
Fans at Saturday's match were asked to pay their respects to the war dead by listening to a rendition of the Last Post, followed by a minute's silence.
But some from the Black Country had seemingly drunk a little too much.
They spoke, laughed, shouted, sang their praises of their beloved Baggies, and generally made cunts of themselves, whilst more than 13,000 other more respectful fans - of both sides - looked on, and wished them dead.
The Hull City Fans Forum was alive with posters condemning the actions of the few.
After the match, which West Brom 1-0, supporters reflected on the noisy, heartless, disrespectful West Brom drunken louts.
One Albion fan said:
"Remembrance? A lot of 'em 'ave trouble rememberin' where the live!"
A City fan remarked:
"It's a pity they remembered how to get to Hull."
