Remembrance

Although none of these photographs were taken on Remembrance Sunday, and two have been posted before, it seems appropriate to post them again now, as a mark of remembrance for our fallen soldiers.
The first was taken just after Remembrance Sunday 2010 in the garrison church of St. Mary de Castro at Dover Castle, and I have tried a crude attempt at a ‘colour popped’ version to follow it.  I’m not sure if it worked.  I know that I need to work on my method for doing this.

The remainder were taken in late summer of 2010 at the Allied War Cemetery at Chania in Crete.  A visit to this, or any other War Cemetery, is a very moving experience and is sure to stimulate sincere feelings for the soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice during the conflicts in which they served their countries.

No poppies I’m afraid, but the way in which these War Cemeteries are looked after really does show how their sacrifice is valued and remembered.
