The Kohima epitaph

“When you go home, tell them of us and say: ‘For your tomorrow, we gave our today.’”

Autumn pulled out all the stops for Remembrance Sunday:

We always give four pages of the paper over to Remembrance Sunday services and I’m glad.

It was lovely to see so many people – and so many children - there. Without what those brave soldiers did for us, none of us would be here.

We will never forget.

    Lovely post, and very important to remember you are right.
    We always have the 2 minutes silence at work on the 11th (so this year on Friday) or the closest day to it.

  3. How wonderful! Veteran’s Day here in the U.S. is special to me. My husband was in the Army, a Captain in the military police during the Vietnam war. We go to his army reunions each year and we hear the stories told by the other soldiers. I am always so touched to hear the stories told by the WW II vets. They are amazing.

  4. It sounds like a very moving day. What gorgeous weather to go with it.

    Beautiful post. I was surprised how little mention there was of Veteran’s Day/Remembrance Day in the blogworld!

    Loved the picture of the veteran with the smile and the green hat. Really captured the moment.

  7. I love the picture of the veteran! Veteran’s Day definitely has a place in my heart- both my grandfathers and three of my uncles are veterans.
