This year Remembrance Day fell on a Sunday, and as usual we had a parade service with scouts, guides, brownies, cubs, rainbows and beavers in attendance.
Don Axcell led our service, with a initial talk about the things we remember.
Before we observed the 2 minute silence, we also spent 2 minutes listening to a recording of the sounds from the battlefield of World War I. This brought home the incessant noise that the soldiers had to endure, and the constant thought that every bang might kill you.
The 2 minute silence was observed with a TV link to the service at the Cenotaph in London.
Don’s message linked our remembrance of those who gave their lives in wartime, to our remembrance of Jesus sacrifice on the cross.
The poppy reminds us not only of Flanders' fields, but also of the black hole where the nails went into the cross, with the red blood seeping into the wood around.
