Today is Remembrance Sunday. And as we do every year, while the hoomans remember those who fought for our freedom in the many wars, we visited the Animals in War memorialThere were a row of poppy wreaths … From various animal charities …And rescue centresWe were very touchedAnd amongst them was this card on a wreath from a family in Christchurch, Dorset:Which read:
We will always remember.
True Heroes –
Couldn’t have been done without you.
In human conflict, you had no choice.
While ceremonies throughout the nation commemorated Remembrance Day, there was no one there this morning – except a solitary man who asked us if there would be a ceremony. I don’t know, I answered. I guess not.
The animal in War memorial is at the corner of Brook Street and Park Lane.
