They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

From Laurence Binyon’s poem For the Fallen, written in September 1914

So i’ll probably not get a chance to post this tomorrow morning so decided earlier was better than later.

Regardless of whatever political beliefs you hold or your feelings on war itself, please take a moment during your busy day to think and reflect on all those that did not make it back home and those loved ones that were left behind to grieve.

Tomorrow whilst going about my business, i will be wearing this (and my poppy) with pride, if i can get Red to let go of it!!!

  1. Awesome 👏🏻 perfect timing all around. Tomorrow I will be spending it with my Navy Chief brother, it is my older brother’s birthday who is a disabled veteran and Veteran’s Day here in the US. We wear Poppies, as well. Grateful to you for serving, as so many have, some gone yet not forgotten, and those who remain in need of us. Remembrance matters…
