On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month the guns fell silent.

This will be our first armistice day without the WW1 veterans, who would've have thought all 3 would go in one year? It doesn't seem a year ago when we watched them lay their wreathes for the last time.
With the pasting of these hero's it now up to us all not to forget the horror they saw.

I'm working today (the first time in about 6 years) but I'm hoping I can pop out at 11am. Although I had booked today off I had to change it due to a head office visit. I don't like working because you always get a customer ask you something at 11am & it makes me mad!!!
It's also the first time I'll be celebrating today, come back tomorrow to see what I did... .......
I'm excited!


  1. I think it is very important that none of us forget. I am sure the war in Afghanistan & Iraq is awful (as is any war), and I feel for all those who have been injured and lost there lives, but even that horror does not scratch the surface compared to the thousands that died in WW1 & WW2 to keep us safe

  2. It was so touching to see people of all ages at our local parade at the weekend, I plan to take my younger cousin next year. He may not fully understand but I hope that this will ensure that our younger generations are aware that their PS3's and the like are thanks in part to so many brave people
