Of all the commorations I have seen for the 100th Aniversary the most evocative has to be in the Churchyard at Slimbridge, Gloucestershire. A local artist has made life size figures of soldiers out of chicken wire and these ghostly figures have been placed at the foot of the graves of the men who died in WW1.
The amount of work that has gone into the production of all the commemorative displays around the country is amazing. It's both heartwarming and humbling to realise that there are still so many people who not only remember, but care enough to do something like that. Snowflakes and millenials take note.
On Sunday morning,at both the Victory Services Club and the Union Jack Club, there were a string of taxis to take the people across to the Cenotaph area and return them later FREE. At the VSC, where I stay, the taxi drivers are given bacon rolls and mugs of coffee as they wait. My London Branch of our Regimental Association have laid a wreath in the grounds of the Royal Hospital for decades, I have been doing it for 4 years now. Whilst there I pay a visit to an In-Pensioner, WWII and 94 years of age, his younger brother was my first SNCO when I joined in 1963.
