Remembrance Sunday Commemorations.  
The second Sunday of November - 9th.

I recall going as a child going to watch my dad March with the MOTHS down the main street of town. He made sure his medals were shining and my mom had to make sure there was not a hair on his black blazer.
We continued going when I was married, taking the children who were very small with us.
As the years went by less and less were with us in the march.

War is just so sad. I recall my father waking up screaming. There was no counseling for them when they survived the war and came back to the real world. We got used to it as it was flashbacks from the war.
He was not an  affectionate man and mellowed as we got older. He adored his grandchildren- he would hug them. I cannot recall ever getting a hug from my father.
When I was with him before he past away he would say," I dont think I cant walk anymore. "I had to say
"Ofcourse you can do it"
  WE WILL NEVER FORGET

My father was very similar to yours Honeybee.  He never saw any actual action because of his disabilitiesand was in the 'Home Guard' but his brothers did and his father (my granddad) - he never spoke of his experiences.

We used to go to the local cenotaph but now we watch it all on TV and both of us cry. Such a pity that no lessons have been learnt from the past wars.

War is not glorious but those who lost their lives are...

I never thought a lot about Remembrance as a teenager, my stepfather was then in the mental hospital after his accident in 1955 and my mother tried to forget the war years as she struggled with life on her own.
Plus not knowing what my father had gone through to get here and help fight and how he died, even my mother did not know, all she knew was that he was killed.
So now I think more of what my father & stepfather, and mother endured through the five years, it seems that in some way I should thank them for my safe & ease life that up till now I have had.
Tan can we have this banner on Tuesday please?

Yes we will be having both these banners on for Tuesday our Nordog. 
I too was similar in mind to you when I was younger. As I matured I learned to appreciate, and be thankful, and grateful for all that fought in the wars.

You did well to get all those lovey photos Tan and so pleased the weather was kind this morning. We watched it on TV and it was very moving, as it always is. When I was little we always stopped what we were doing at 11am and did the two minutes silence. I wasn't sure what i was for when I was really young but knew it was something very important. It must have been on the radio.

Thank you our Joelle. Initially it was hard to get stood at a good clear space. I raised my camera a few times high, and zoomed in for some. Then after moving around a little I got a good place. 
Very moving it was for sure. 
I filled up when the Veterans marched forward. Bless them.

Thank you our Honeybee it really was so emotional, and so touching too seeing so many people there all paying their respects. All so politely quiet for the two minute silence. The atmosphere was like being wrapped up all together in deep thought in remembrance of sadly all who had lost their life, and applauding all the Veterans there that were marching. I really was deeply touched, as everyone there. God Bless them all.

Post by Joelle on Sun Nov 09, 2014 9:36 am

a poem I wrote a few years ago

REMEMBRANCE DAY
Today  I bowed my head with all the rest 
of those remembering all our heroes dead
 from world wars One and Two to present day
 Yet families  still waiting here with dread
 to hear sad news that one more man has died 
whatever member of the family they be 
grief stricken relatives know without a doubt 
That their loved one ne'er again they’ll see  
 For it goes on and on these mindless wars 
and men and women still are being slain 
if only we could have peace in this world      
and never have such worries e’er again 
And yes we will remember every year  
 And still  for every gallant hero shed a tear

Such a lovely poem our Joelle. So can feel for all those then at home, awaiting their family member/s to come home, yet sadly they never did. 

Such a shame our Nordog about the band, they certainly let all down, and themselves too.

In Bedworth in Warwickshire a plane flies over at 11am each year on the 11th November and drops poppy petals, Sam once lived there and he said it was very moving.

Our Two Minute Silence.


Remembrance Sunday 9th November - Remembrance Day 11th November P1060610


In memory of all our little families Countries, to remember all those that went to fight in the war. 
So very many as we know were never able to come back home again. Fortunately many did. But bearing with them, for all time, the memories of those times at war. 
God Bless them all. They will never be forgotten. xx  Remembrance Sunday 9th November - Remembrance Day 11th November Images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ2jtRut1zB_gEWlsmuuuXa4e5eEslsKe8a8c5uNQ9ZfcTUjo71PdGkc5RM
