Time & Rememberance

It’s already been 15 months since we moved to our new home in Llanfoist and time literally seems to be flying by.  The David Wilson builders are out in force today as you can see in the photo below we have the big crane on site today, let’s hope that they fall silent at 11am today, 11/11, as we remember our war dead.

Taking this from our second spare bedroom which is a homage to all our ancestors that served their country in both world wars is quite apt.  Fathers and grandfathers, great uncles & their friends too many to mention, we will remember them.

WW1 grandfather’s, WW2 father’s medals & my cap badge!
Debbie’s father was awarded this certificate by the King
Grandmother’s brother and “Tower” poppy
My father’s HQ landing ship HMS Largs
Dad’s “crossing the line” certificate

I’m pleased to say the two minutes silence was observed and we decided to lay flowers down for Debbie’s parents at the memorial gardens in Llwydcoed where we had to do a bit of repair work on Cliff’s plaque, but it was a beautiful, dry day with almost no wind and very peaceful.
