    It is not eleven o'clock over here so the various parades have not started. But you have produced a lot of interesting photos.

    Glad to see the dead of both world wars are still being remembered on this special day.

    I hope everyone has their own special thoughts on this day, I am just off out to a small service not far from me which is being held after the main service which I dont go to here as its well, dare I say, too religous and I am not, so I dont feel its the place for me to remember the fallen in an environment I am not comfortable with.

    Didn't get to attend a service this year as my sister was getting married. Jodi and I made sure we had poppies to wear though.

    The wood carvings are very well done. Number 3 is especially haunting; I'm not quite sure why.

    I went to the memorial service at my local memorial today - forgot to take my camera. but it was very moving. There must have been around 300 people there - much more than I remember in earlier years, but the commentator on the BBC of the Cenotaph service in London also said that more people are taking an interest these days than previously, which must be a good thing.

    Certainly is a good thing, AR. Same happening down here too.

    Those chain-saw carvings are excellent, Spidge. Thank you for sharing them. Very evocative

    They have been there for four years now and only one slouch hat has been broken.

    "Touch Wood" and fingers crossed!
