This is another taken at the Remembrance Day parade on Sunday. This old soldier was very keen to lay his own personal tribute to fallen comrades at the War memorial before the Civic parade party arrived and was escorted in his endeavour by a friendly Police Community Support Officer. He had obviously taken great pride in his appearance looking very smart for the occasion and I was struck by the contrast between him and the PCSO in her uniform. He really needed an overcoat as he looked looked very cold ~ I was cold and I was better wrapped up than him!
No. 2 is a mono conversion with just some strategic colour brought back.
