Remembrance Day 2020

The years are passing. In particular, our direct connection with those vets of the Second World War is becoming less.

Above is a photo taken in May of 1945 of RAF No 626 Squadron, my late father's unit. Those guys were brave. Bomber Command had one of the highest casualty rates of any service.

Contrary to what some folk might think, observing Remembrance Day is not a celebration or glorification of war in any way, but to remember those who served.
