I vividly recall the Remembrance Days of my childhood. The occasion was celebrated with as much solemnity as was appropriate. While it admittedly has been a few years, the images of the students' orderly march to the cenotaph, of a large group of veterans with heads bowed, of the crowd standing in silent stillness in recognition of sacrifice and valour, are still vivid. I recall, even before fully understanding the significance, feeling moved as people in uniform placed their poppies on a wreath and saluted, their expressions clearly conveying their memories.
So it is, as we prepare to honour the fallen and acknowledge the sacrifices of so many brave men and women, that we share some meaningful photos here ... "Lest We Forget".
