While the above image is poignant and reflective, I also like this image of the innocent spontaneous fascination of the youngsters in this picture with "Tommy". The official name of the statue is/was 1101 to represent the first minute after the armistice went into effect at 11am on November 11, 1918.

Arguably the second best Border point between England and Scotland.....Union Chain Bridge over the River Tweed nr Horncliffe Northumberland.

and only 100 yards from the Chain Bridge Honey Farm, which coincidentally has random stuff like this scattered around its outbuildings!

My small tribute to Remembrance Day...

Strava
The Newport Pagnell Iron Bridge has been decked in hand-knitted poppies...

It brought quite a lump to my throat running over the bridge this morning... The poppies looked amazing even under the street light...

Pictures are not mine... No way could I photograph them at four in the morning!

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep,
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints in the snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft star-shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die.

Chris, that's lovely :D

We observed a very emotional and special 2 minute silence at 11:00 today whilst out on a club bike ride... We timed it perfectly - we'd just arrived at our cafe stop :)

Brilliant, and poignant.
