    ...That we are never far from conflict/war and that we need this reminder to stop in our tracts and THINK! Also, it's once again become acceptable to talk about our troops with PRIDE,after years of being rubbished by the left!!

    That twinge in your intestines
    I am grateful to all the British troops who fought for their and our way of life. I hope for the day when the human race wises up and no longer sees sending our children off to die as a solution to any of our problems.

    Three of my Great Gandfathers fought for the Allies in the Second World War, they didn't die in action, but I'm greatful for what they did, and I remember them today for it. Fighting the Nazis was the only just war I can think of and I thank providence there were brave men and women around then.

    Watched it on the TV, brought a tear to my eye tbh. Seeing the mentally, phsically wounded, the old and young. They gave up alot, and still battle on with pride. Makes me feel lucky having the life I do.

    I was walking around on the 11th and I came across a Vimy Ridge memorial where a fairly large group of veterans (dressed in their attire), as well as various bystanders had gathered to pay their respects. I stood and watched from afar for a short while. There was a small ceremony happening, and a few of the veterans had tears in their eyes. It was a little overwhelming to witness.

    Je me souviens.
