Remember the Fallen

You probably wont actually be able to get within half a mile of the National Service of Remembrance today at the Cenotaph in Whitehall at 11am, but even if you only head for the area you are sure to be swept up in tide of marching veterans at some point during the morning.

And in the centenary year of the beginning of the Great War, we should be thankful that we still offer those who have laid down their lives for freedom, and those who are willing to do so, such dignified annual and constant tributes.
