We Shall Remember Them

Posted in Other Stuff by 200

If there’s one thing the British can do really well, it’s put on a Remembrance Service. The service at the Albert Hall as featured on BBC 1 last night was a cracking example. I can measure how good it is by how many times I get the lump in the throat. Last night there were several.

I went to the Remembrance Day Service in my local town today. So did several hundred other people. I’m sure there were more this year than the last time I went.

The old soldier who read the oration was different this year; I guess the ex-para who did it for a while has died.
