Remembrance Day

vBulletin counter

This Remembrance Day is a particularly poignant one here in Canada, coming just a few weeks after two of our men were killed in their own country by extremists. It is rare to see anyone in our streets not wearing a poppy. Still though we must never forget what has happened, we need to move on to the future in the hope that one day, it will not be necessary for any person young or old to give their life in war. That will always be my hope and prayer.

When we were in London in September they were just starting to place the ceramic poppies around the Tower of London


The following picture gives you an idea of the display now finished here and here It stretches the whole way around as the second picture below shows. The final poppy will be place tomorrow on Remembrance Day
