To those who fought and gave their lives -toay is not just an act of remembrance but a day of universal reflection on the value of life, of peace, of humanity.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Taken at the Auschwitz museum, Poland.

My uncle, now in his 80s, was a tail end Charlie - a rear gunner on the Lancaster Bombers. Sgt Bernard Warren in the 103 Bomber command squadron. He was based at Elsham Wolds and later was shot down over Düsseldorf - becomming a prisoner of war. He is a member of the Caterpillar Club because the silk from his parachute saved his life. His best friend, Rowland Luffman, was 576 squadron who also flew from Elsham Wolds - they still meet up today.

My father was in the ball turret of a B-17, got shot down but survived. I served in a foolish conflict, but what woke me up was when my sons reached the age I was when I went to war. It was chilling to think of them in that situation. Anyway, your image is meaningful to several generations.

superb stuff. My grand father was top gunner in a Halifax and also a member of the caterpillar club..twice having to use his chute second time over occupied territory and ended up a POW. he told me he was held in a prison near one of these death camps but didn't know what it was but the smell was puzzling to them....just as well they didn't know at the time.
