The Gallery: Week 81 – 11.11.11

The eleventh day of the eleventh month of the two thousand and eleventh year, at eleven o’clock in the morning. The ninety-third anniversary of the armistice at the end of World War One. Once again, an anniversary acknowledged in a simple but moving and dignified way in the centre of Derby. The well-known verse of Binyon’s poem ‘For The Fallen’ was quoted aloud. (They shall grow not old…)

 One man and one woman from the services honour the fallen…

 …as the bugle sounds, and we remember the cost of our freedom.

It's kind to share!
