This image was taken on Saturday evening with a low sun and just after a rain fall.
When i took it, it instantly reminded me of how lucky i am to be free and safe, after all that have died to make this Happen for me.
God bless our service men.

Have to agree with Phillip's remarks, and of course your own up top: a sentiment we should never forget.

You cannot be serious ?

Are you trying to put a photoshop montage with some poppies and a cut out of a Mustang and try to claim it's to do with Britain?

Firstly who said it was Britain and secondly even if it is Britain, p51's flew from Britain and aided the War so what exactly are you getting at other than making a fool of your self.
Very strange comment indeed.
