Shots from the Remembrance Sunday ceremony in Northampton last month. It's a wonderful occasion with groups marching from the Market Square to All Saints Church where they are joined by the local dignatories who have walked through the streets from the Guildhall. Solemn, dignified, colourful - it really is a fitting tribute to the fallen.

Thanks for looking and please view large if you have the time.

Stop press. Just read the news about Pete. I've got much to thank him for both on this site and the Pentax User one, so I'd like to wish him the speediest of recoveries.

Excellent Dave, it has all the clarity and attention to detail that we've come to expect from you, like the way the reds seem well balanced throughout the montage.

So well put together David as usual, all wonderful images in their own right but I think the central one of the cadets is my favourite.

Beautifully put together Dave ...... do you put a lot of time and effort into placing the individual images so they look just right or do you use the Flaming Pear "Masterful Montages for Dummies" plugin for CS2 and CS3? Don't answer that question if you feel it may incriminate you or subsequently harm your defence.

Fabulous collection. I said it for the last montage but each of these individual images would easily stand on their own. Brilliant.

All excellent pictures in their own right David and as a set they add up to more than the sum of the parts.

For me the montage is thought provoking. I was travelling in the car yesterday and heard an item on the radio about Napoleon Bonaparte. After his defeat at Waterloo he surrendered to the British, thinking they might be the fairest and most just of his enemies. He had an expectation that he might end his days in an idyllic cottage outside Oxford, or so it seems, but instead he was banished to the Island of St. Helena out in the Atlantic to keep him out of harm's way. He asked for an Irish physician, a Dr. O'Meara, who was in the Royal Navy, to accompany him as his personal physician and this was granted. Apparently, Dr. O'Meara kept a diary of his life with Napoleon on St. Helena. The most interesting thing for me in listening to the radio piece was speculation, by the author who has re-published Dr. O'Meara's diaries, that had Napoleon been successful, the First and Second World Wars may not have happened!

In Ireland to this day, we have still not figured out how to commemorate the thousands of Irish men who died in the First World War in the British Army while at the same time honouring the men who died for the cause of Irish freedom from Britain in the War of Independence between 1916 and 1922. My (step) great grandfather on my father's side fought in WWI and my uncle on my mother's side fought in WWII against the Japanese in Burma.

When I look at these pictures I am thankful for the European Union and hopeful that future generations will be spared the horrors of the past. But at the same time I fear that many people do not appreciate its value. In Ireland we see it as an ATM machine and in Britain there is deep skepticism about the European Union.

The best thing that we can do today in the memory of those who gave their lives is to actively work together for a real and lasting European Union on not only economic grounds but also in the more fundamental, basic values of shared humanity and solidarity.
John

P.S. I had a hard week at work and have just started into my second bottle of French wine to loosen out on a Friday night. Plus, I'm hopeful that we'll stuff Clermont Auvergne in our European Heineken Cup game tomorrow! And I hope to have the pictures to show it!
