Remembrance Sunday

poppiesToday is Remembrance Sunday, when we stop and remember all those who died in the wars. Although my father and grandfather didn’t die in the World Wars I always remember Dad thinking of his friends that he lost during WW2. And now he’s gone, I stop and remember them for him.

Here are some photographs of Dad and Granddad.
