Remembrance Sunday.

My visit home has been a rather trying trip, but, as always, it is coming to a close.  It is with mixed feelings that I leave England now.
I did manage to slip in a little bit of English pageantry this afternoon, a Remembrance Sunday parade and the laying of wreathes of poppies at a local war memorial.  Although a sombre event, it did put the faintest of smiles on my face.  Lest we forget.
Bye, bye Blighty.

Thud, VG: Sometimes I wonder if Blighty is more real in your hearts and minds than on an Island!
VG: It's good to have you back!

Some truth there Dennis, in all a moving occasion.
