Remembrance12 November 2017
We attended the church Remembrance Day service earlier then walked along to the War Memorial where the village congregated for the open-air service.
In church, the Last Post was followed by ‘Jerusalem’ and the hymns were rounded out by ‘Abide With Me’.
The last time I heard the Last Post was, well, the previous years’ services and at a great Uncle’s funeral service. He’d fought in Burma during WWII, was a member of the Burma Star organisation, had a significant number of compatriots along in his last day.
So yeah, I LOL’d this time as well as that.
No, wait, no; the thing with tears and a swelling of the breast. Yeah, that thing.
