At 10:30 the parade to the cenotaph departed.
I could hear the marching band playing old wartime songs; "Lilly Marlene" and "Bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover".
One of the very old songs I knew because my mom used to sing it to me; "The Skye boat song".
A large crowd had gathered around the cenotaph.
I noticed this one gentleman standing alone.
A moment of silence in such a large crowd is a very moving thing.
|What an odd patch this gent has put on his jacket. I wonder why he chose it ?|
Many different individuals and groups came forward to lay wreaths.
Clearly we have not forgotten.
Note: I'm am quite taken with a free photo editing phone app called Prisma and used it to mess with these photos. I'll try to restrain myself in future but no guarantees. ;-)
