Lest we forget

I never do, coming from a family with a strong military tradition (I wanted to become a fighter pilot when I was younger until I failed the medical because I suffered from hayfever very badly then… oops!) and hailing from one of the UK’s primary military ports, the city of Plymouth, it’s hard not to know someone or some event that hasn’t shaped the place I grew up in from the near wipe out of blanket bombing of the Blitz in WW2 (and the shocking 1950s rebuild of the center from what was once a beautiful area with character and history). I’ve known loved ones lose their lives whilst serving our country since then too. I now have only one nephew currently serving in the Royal Navy, so I’m sorry if this is a little indulgent but this is to my family, and the other families who have loved ones currently on tour in the Armed Forces and to those that lost their lives in whatever conflict including the 2 world wars – for those who died that we may express our freedoms… I will be remembering the fallen on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month (GMT) in a 2 minute silent vigil on what is known as armistice (or Remembrance) Day.  

R.I.P. all the fallen heroes…


  1. We will remember them. It is important.


  2. Photino Photino

    Amen to that.
