On Sunday most of the world will celebrate Armistice Sunday in rememberance of those who lost their lives in the World Wars I and II, as well as in other conflicts that have happened since.
On 7th.October I featured a picture of the steeple at Belton Church near us, http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Belton_Steeple_/ , and below the steeple on the churchyard wall is the village war memorial.
The people of the village leave the wreaths laid on Armistice Sunday in place for the following 12 months and this was taken during the summer. It is sad to note that, even in a small village like this, 10 young men lost their lives in the 1st.World War, was there anywhere untouched by the conflict? Fortunately there do not appear to be any names from World War II.
Depsite all this sadness I hope you all have an enjoyable and peaceful weekend.
