Armistice Day by casablanca

Armistice Day

A familiar sight in recent years, these metal silhouettes have appeared across the country as symbols of Remembrance. This one is by the war memorial in my town.

A moving sight, as always, to see the veterans, elderly and with shining medals on the chest of their dark Winter coats, walking up to the Memorial for the 2 minutes silence at 11am. They always come on 11th.

Remembrance Sunday is 14th this year and there will be a parade, but for today it was more personal.
These silhouettes are so symbolic.

Very moving Casa….just saying to Harry, these brave veterans are diminishing every year…we must treasure them & the younger more recent soldiers too. We are lucky mums who have never had to send our kids to war.

I think (hope) that I will still be around when there are no war veterans left alive. We must never forget.

Such simple powerful symbols.

That’s a nice idea having a personal celebration day and a remembrance parade on a different day. The metal silhouette is especially nice and I like how you focused with the shallow dof so everything but the metal and the poppy are blurred.

Lovely symbol to commemorate those who fell in that war. I just hope this is a reminder for everyone that in a war there are only losers.
