I am hoping to make it this year being almost 280 miles closer than last year! Fingers crossed for attending but cannot promise as I'm still about 3 hours away by train, which is mildly annoying as I'm only about 90 miles away.

Would still like to see photos though if possible ;-)

In my best battledress for this weekend, just undecided on FS cap or SD cap!
But seriously i feel very honoured to be able to attend this, the parade to the church on sunday and the wreath laying are paticularly moving for myself.

Good to see you too.
Afraid I wasn't too good, and would have liked to have spoken with you in a better condition, as they believe I have had a stroke, so maybe was not too coherent.
Didn't stop me marching to church and back though eh?!
Never give up!
Cheers Paul

Apologies for my failure to make an appearance, I hope all went well.

How did the wreath laying go? Any photos?

I would have liked to have been there to see that and, of course, pay my respects.
