Lest we forget

A good attendance this morning despite the cold weather when I took my family down to attend the Act of Remebrance ceremony at the Whitehaven war memorial: today is of course both Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day, being the 94th anniversary of the armistice which concluded the shooting at the end of the Great War.

It is important that those who have died in war are not forgotten.

To quote the "Ode of Remembrance" from Laurence Binyon's poem, "For the Fallen"

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
