100th Anniversary remembrance day services.

There was a very good turn out at this morning at my local war memorial in Sale Manchester for the open air service of remembrance and the sun came out.

A friend was at Heliopolis near Cairo.

As always I went to Castle Combe. A slightly larger turnout than usual, but the vicar conducted the same service that he's conducted ever since I have been going. Every year he adds a little something that is relevant. I'm glad it wasn't some huge parade, just the same as always. This year however  I was holding Ernest Youngs  death penny.

Swindon was heaving.

My youngest was in the parade with the ACF.

30 odd years since I used to do it with the TA.

Neath, south Wales. The cadets were later drenched by a torrential downpour but didn't flinch. Credit to them.

Petersfield, Hampshire. After torrential rain the sun was out by 10am. As every year, the Remembrance Service is outdoors in the Square, and then everyone moves down the High Street to the memorial for the Silence and Roll of Honour and laying of wreaths.

Chichester, West Sussex.  Biggest crowd I have seen in years.  The VC paving slab to Wilfrith Elstob was also unveiled during the service and also a carved sculpture.  A slight shower during the service but otherwise sunny.

In the evening, I was one of about 200 torch bearer’s for The Chichester Beacon on The Trundle an Iron Age Hill Fort, that overlooks the city of Chichester.   We lined the rampart overlooking the beacon.  The weather was also kind during the evening.
