When I was little, I went to Sunday School up in Rawdon, the village my grandmother lives in. Each year, there would be a ceremony up at the cenotaph on the Sunday closest to Remembrance Day. Like a lot of people I’ve spoken to, Remembrance Day memories are always linked to memories of either blizzards or extremely cold temperatures.
This year, it was not so. It was such a beautifully warm day that you would have sworn that Spring was around the corner. I only had my winter coat on while we were out at the ceremony because I figured that I might get chilly when I was just standing around, but as soon as we headed over to the legion, I changed into my Spring/Fall jacket.
Cenotaph and plenty of people in attendance to remember
Wreaths - at first I was disappointed that I got those shadows, but now I kind of like them as they show some of those who came to remember
At the end of the ceremony, everyone was invited to place their poppies on the cross
And my favourite picture, from when we were leaving the legion later on that afternoon:
Me and my man. ~SWOON~
