My daughter and I went to the Remembrance parade, to see my grandchildren in the scouts and beavers.
I remembered the time when I watched my grandad, great aunt and great uncle and also other members, one in a Burma Star. Then my dad in the town band, and he blew the call in the churchyard.
My mum would take me to the churchyard to buy a small cross, to place in remembrance for her brother and others gone by.
Now they have all gone, so I went to do a cross for them. But none were there. I asked a poppy seller; he said it wasn’t his department.
Sunday morning, only seven crosses were there. Next year, 1914-2014, can we be told where we can buy them before Sunday?

I am sure many others would also like to take part. Maybe a tray inside the church would help?
