  1. Nice shots! Happy and much fun while looking at it. πŸ™‚

    Happy Wordless Wednesday! My entry is here.

  2. Looks like a big celebration. πŸ™‚ Love that photo with the field full of red flowers. I’ve been wondering about that pink pin I’ve been seeing on the news anchors on BBC. What’s it for? πŸ™‚ Have a nice Wednesday and thanks for linking to my WW post.

      It’s a Poppy to comemmorate Armistice Day (the accepted end of WW1). Red for the blood of the Lost; black to mourn the need for War and the loss of loved ones; green for the soldiers who fought for our freedom. The red flowers are live poppies.

      The ceremony in the photos is the Remembrance Sunday Parade – a tradition in towns up and down UK since 1919 (held on November 11th from 1919 to 1945, then moved to the sunday nearest the 11th, then from 1995 some comemmoration occurs on both dates – with the Sunday getting the bulk of the attention).

    In the U.S., 11 November is now called Veterans Day to salute those living and dead who have fought in our militaries.
