Thanks for pics JL. 

I have noticed that it has not been so easy to buy a poppy as it was last year. Probably a train stations etc, but I could not even find one in the supermarket so I will make an online donation. Its a shame, if veterans lose out through less charitable funds, but hopefully it will not deter from remembering the sacrifices made for us.

On BBC2 now Peter Jackson documentary "They Shall Not Grow Old " , will also be on iPlayer 

Amazing piece of film.

BUT...it's "They shall GROW NOT OLD"

NOT

"They shall not grow old"

The incorrect common usage and acceptance of this is a growing bugbear of mine.

The correct, full, fourth stanza is - 

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.
