It strikes me that we only really remember those who died in WWI and post WWI which is a fraction of those that have died fighting for these Isles. My thoughts are if it wasn't televised or within a certain timespan then those that died aren't really remembered. Soldiers have been dying to protect this country since the Roman invasion and probably before that. I bet no one was stood there for 2 minutes today thinking of those that died fighting to save this country from Duke William of Normandy in 1066 or of those who died fighting alongside Alfred the Great against the Vikings at the Battle of Ethandun on Salisbury Plain. Even those of the Crimea and South African Wars are largely forgotten. So as for 'We will remember them' I say bollocks. We will remember a small proportion of them. Anyway it's the NAAFI so crack on!
