Remembrance Sunday





Today we remember all who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in times of conflict that we might live in freedom .Our thoughts also turn to all who mourn especially remembering the families of our present time.

                                            'There is a link that cannot sever
                                            Love and remembrance live forever '                            

The personal inscription engraved on the gravestone of
Thomas Henry 1882-1917
in The Military Cemetery, Le Cateau, France
my paternal grandfather.
                                       
                                                   We will remember them.

  4. A lovely post, Linda. I stood on a windy hillside in the far north of Scotland this morning for the wreath laying at the local war memorial. So many names from such a small community.
