    Bit peeved that I could'nt make it to the local Cenotaph this year for the rememberance parade. Muggins got drenched at work the other day & is now in bed with the flu!!
    Although I am watching it on T.V.
    We must ensure tho,that the youth of today remember the sacrifices of our Fathers,Grandfathers & every one else who fought so bravely for freedom & honour. That is up to us!
    One thing i read in other posts here is it seems to be the younger children who are more interested in the events than those teenagers.I would like to see a subject like 'War & Rememberance' tought at school. I mean,I was watching a quiz show the other night ("Fact Hunt" with Al Murry,the pub landlord) & one contestant in his 30's?
    did'nt know when the Battle Of Midway was!!!
  2. Just as well that those we are remembering never came down with the flu before they went over the top!!!
