rememberance sunday

Recommended Posts

Just returned from the war memorial in my village of Westbury on Trym. The turn out each year seems to rise with more and more youngsters, Air cadets, Scouts etc.

My other half dos`nt  come with me, she knows I have to be on my own.

Glass raised for All the boys and girls who have kept us safe, some times at huge costs to themselves and their families.

We will remember them.

Well done, He is a curious example of the Human race. Must know he is being watched and still defies convention.

 

So many gave their lives and limbs that allow him to be such a ****!

We came past the War Memorial in Barnack on the way home from shooting a few clays. We were waved down and sat quietly while the silence was observed.

 

We MUST remember them all.

My older family members who served in WW11 would never talk about. 

Nice to give a few pounds to RBL and take two minutes to think of the sacrifice made so we can live as we do.

There was a two minutes silence for remembrance at Bisley. 

Disappointed.  

Despite an announcement on the radio  and the hooter sounded for cease fire, there was still firing on one of the smaller ranges, maybe Winans or Cheylesmore. Very poor. Show some respect!

Firstly, I thank any and all that have served in uniform on my behalf and that of previous generations. Over three decades of public service, I have had the pleasure of working alongside colleagues who had previously served from Marines, Para's and the RN to name but a few.

Today we have remembered the fallen but also those still with us.

I take no pleasure in airing the below photos, however I believe Corbyn once again showed his true colours today. Pic on the left is from the 2018 ceremony and the one on the right is from today.

Last year he turned up wearing  a cheapo anorak complete with hood and the smallest Poppy pin badge. Today, it would seem his advisers steered him towards a more tactful attire. 

After placing his wreath, he appeared pained to lower his head in the usual manner to salute the Cenotaph.

I can honestly say I am disgusted by this man. May he never be entrusted to govern our nation.

Remember 2018, his second best George  car coat on & a red tie. He is the waste of a good skin, I think he was booed today?

He must have had a few months staying in the Thetford forest at ickburgh. Not much remains of the old camp only a couple of buildings are left but loads of the concrete shed bases are still in the woods. It must have been a huge camp.
