Default Rememberance sunday november 9th

I know we have a few ex armed forces on the board. And I am sure that most of us have had family that served during the two world wars. With Rememberance sunday coming up this weekend, I thought you might all like to visit http://www.poppy.org.uk/ to make a small donation.

I actually took part in the parade back in 1970 when I was in the WRAF. We were bussed from RAF Halton to London. It sticks out in my memory as the girl next to me fainted and was dragged away.

Awww I remember when we were kids at school and they would send a child around to all the classrooms so we could buy a poppy!

I'll visit the site PB. Thank you for the link.

I will be taking a moment to remember those that gave their lives for us.

I was in the army cadets, and always felt really proud to wear our best dress unifroms to the remembrance parade.

Hi Effi

I nearly got to go in 1976 (PMRAFNS) but ended up going to RAF Brampton to do my geriatric training instead. I really wanted to go too. I did go to the Farnborough Air Show to escort VIP's on their coach. I still have no idea who they were or where they were from!

Thanks for the link. It only gives a choice of "UK" for country, but I suppose a credit card donation will work just as well from the US.

Bagnut is an unknown quantity at this point

As a member of the WRAF in the late 70's, I never got the opportunity to parade in London, but as a current member of the Fire Service I have visisted YPRES and have taken part in their parade. To see the thousands of names on the Menin Gate who gave their lives was so moving, it is something I will never forget.
