In Remembrance of those who died ....and for those who still serve to defend us ...

THANK YOU -EXPLORED at 494 briefly !

Rememberance Sunday 11th Nov is here again.

Each year I remember the servicemen and women who gave their lives for our freedom.

This year I visited Madingley American WW2 Military Cemetery in Cambridgeshire.

This is just one of the photos I took of this beautiful tranquil place.

I can not imagine a more peaceful and beautiful resting place for the thousands of servicemen buried here and as a monument to those honoured it is indeed a fitting tribute to to these brave and gallant heroes who paid the ultimate price in defence of freedom and liberty.....

We thank you...

INTO THY HANDS O`LORD

 

On our way to France in the summer we stopped overnight in Folkestone. We had a walk along The Lees and came across a number of the Folkestone Artworks, this one was extremely moving and I took a few photos, a while later I noticed a little clump of poppies standing tall in the early evening sun.

Poppy Field... it being Rememberance Sunday an all

As today, Remembrance Sunday is an important day here in the United Kingdom I thought that I would post a shot I took off the Spitfire I show with a group of friends throughout the UK where we raise money for a memorial in my home town, Lytham St Annes.

 

Rememberance Sunday is the Sunday nearest to 11 November Armistice Day, the anniversary of the end of hostilities in the First World War at 11 a.m. in 1918. Remembrance Sunday is held "to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts".

In the United Kingdom, Remembrance Sunday is marked by ceremonies at local war memorials in most cities, towns and villages, attended by civic dignitaries, ex-servicemen and -women (principally members of the Royal British Legion), members of local armed forces regular and reserve units (Royal Navy and Royal Naval Reserve, Royal Marines and Royal Marines Reserve, Army and Territorial Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Auxiliary Air Force), military cadet forces (Sea Cadet Corps, Army Cadet Force and Air Training Corps as well as the Combined Cadet Force) and youth organisations (e.g. Scouts and Guides and Brownies). Wreaths of remembrance poppies are laid on the memorials and two minutes silence is held at 11 a.m.

Captured a few weeks ago as the ceramic poppies were building up.

My parents have come up for a few days and my mum was wearing her poppy for Remembrance Sunday. (11th November, also her birthday). I loved the red of her coat and the poppy.

Ni heneiddiant hwy fel yr heneiddiwn ni;

Ni Flinir hwy gan henaint,

Ac ni gollfarnir hwy gan y blynyddoedd.

Pan fachluda'r haul ac yn y bore, ni a'i cofiwn hwy.

 

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them.

This is part of a series of photographs of the Pots and Pans Memorial view. The memorial was built in 1923 to commemorate the soldiers who gave their lives in the First World War 1914-1919. The losses sustained by the surrounding villages were so great that entire villages were left with no men to continue in the local communities and as a result left the areas after the war almost deserted. Rememberance Sunday here is a very special occasion and usually falls on a very hardy and cold day.

 

Why is it called "Pots and Pans" ?

Pots and Pots is named after the rock that stands before the memorial obelisk as the rock has holes eroded in the top surface that resemble A Pot and A Pan. it is said that the Druids of old used this hill and rock for ceremonies and also for a fire beacon. The view from here on a clear day is almost 35 miles.
