Thank you boys.
'At the going down of the sun
And in the morning, we will remember them....'
We will remember them .. thank you David, you selected your picture well.
An excellent photo, David.
They certainly will be remembered...forever.
that's beautiful and very touching.
That is a beautiful and sad photo.. God love them all...thank you David.
A very poignant scene, beautifully caught in the sun's rays.
These soldier silhouettes work very well in the memorial gardens
A couple of days ago I'd seen from my kitchen window the squelchy border of my back garden and was then reminded of the soldiers, who having rid their socks of all manner of filth, found them all too frequently soiled again.
Tomorrow, and in trainers, dry, I will cross swords with my new DAB radio.
I noticed the little lad who used to play at soldiers in my back garden along with my son and other boys took up what has now become his appointed position at the cenotaph service. A good Winstanley lad indeed.
A very touching and thought-provoking photograph.
My father, like hundreds of thousands of others, joined up in 1939 and spent most of the war in the Mediterranean and North Africa. He didn’t speak very much about that time. He served in the Royal Navy and they were involved in escorting Russian convoys.
We owe all those young men and women such a huge debt of gratitude for the freedom we enjoy today.
A brilliant and very touching photo to commemorate such an important day.
That's a lovely shot!
Thanks for the compliments - but it was one of those lucky shots. I just happened to be travelling between services at Eccleston and Charnock Richard last Sunday morning when I came round the bend by St Mary's School - and this is what I saw.
For all those who left and didn't return and those who returned but weren't the same ... I will always remember them.
Lucky shots are the best shots :)
