Remembrance

Today, it’s Remembrance Sunday in the UK. I thought I would pay respect for those who fought and still fight for their country in wars all over the world. I know it’s just a drawing and won’t ever match up to their courage and all they have sacrificed, but it’s something to show my appreciation.
If it wasn’t for Britain and their Allies, Jersey would be a very, very different place! Both of my Grandfathers (who I never got to meet) fought in the Second World War, so this is for them too.
I will always remember Armistice Day in Primary school. At 11am we would all be in the school hall, listening to the radio as Big Ben rang in London for the 2 minute silence.
Lots of Love
