11.11.11...........We honour them...

Today is our Armistice day and we remember our heroes lost . At the 11th hour on the 11th day and the 11th year we will have two minutes silence throughout the whole of the UK and we remember them.....
I wear my poppy with pride and remember them.....

The poppy is our symbol for remembrance and they are everywhere at the moment in honour of all our lost men and women.......... They gave their lives so we could live free..

Fields of poppies symbolic of the blood lost....



Across the world our friends also have special days to remember them...



In the USA our friends have their Veterans day and they remember them.......
In Canada they also have their Remembrance day and they remember them...



Wherever we live we must all never forget all the brave men and women who lost their lives and for all those that serve now to defend and protect us... we.... WILL REMEMBER THEM....



Hugs GJ xxx
