Lest we Forget

At three-thirty this morning, four sleepy children donned their school uniforms, pinned on their replica 'peace medalettes', tucked a poppy in their button hole and headed for the car.

With Old Nev visiting for this special occasion, we all headed into our small country town and took part in the march and dawn service, followed by a barbecue breakfast and a good dose of community spirit in the town park.

Whilst we remembered those who did not return and paid tribute to those men and women currently away from home, we also silently expressed gratitude for the return of men such as this, who fought to defend our country, and lived to be much-loved grandfathers.

We salute you old Nev and give thanks.
