Remembrance Day

We ended up attending the Remembrance Day service in Chichester (not Brighton as planned). It was of course emotional. That "They shall grow not old" line in the Ode of Remembrance always gets me, as does seeing all those elderly chaps standing proud in their uniform.


I forgot to pin my poppy to my jacket, but at least I had one on my hat.

  1. Lovely outfit for Remembrance Day!
    It's really kind of you that you remember this important day. Many people don't and it isn't good.

  2. I love Remembrance Day services too. I feel there is something realyl beautiful about the Last Post and the fact that we have been having this exact same ceremony all over the country for nearly 100 years.

  3. The last line always gets me too. It is part of the 8pm service at The Menin Gate every evening and it always chokes me.

    Glorious outfit :)

  4. You look absolutely gorgeous! I think its great that even with everything going on, we still spend time remembering people that died for us over 60 years ago and the ones that we are still losing today. Just wish some other younger people would realise that those 18 and 19 year old men didn't have a choice and so many lost their lives just so a lot of teenagers feel like their life is over with an exam or a break up. Jeez I'm starting to sound like my Grandma!! XxxX http://thesecondhandrose.blogspot.com/
