    Marked very well at the club. Course full for Captains drive in competition and all stopped at 11.00 when the klaxon sounded. Those of us in the clubhouse all stopped too, with the TV providing some very striking images

    Re: Remembrance day 2017 - will you bother

    Ive never gone to parades, but always observe the two minutes silence, think especially of my own Grandad who served in North Africa and Italy, as well as all of the others who have laid down their lives for us in all theatres of war.

    As a student of history, I know a great deal about both world wars, and wars in general, but as a civvie cant imagine the true horrors of what people in the forces have faced, and live with for many, many years later. I'm sure its ten times worse than whatever I could imagine.

    Exactly the same for me until this year. My two boys are in cubs and were asked/told to attend the parade. Very impressive turnout for a service at the town's war memorial followed by the parade down to the church for the Remembrance service. An incredibly powerful and moving experience even for someone as unemotional as me. The weather was shocking from the start but as the last wreath was laid at the war memorial the sun came out and there were audible gasps from those gathered as the sun lit up the memorial.
