I am from a military family and also spent eight years serving myself so remembrance day has always been important to me. I always donate to royal british legion and wear my poppy with pride. It is important to remember those who died for us to live in a free country. Our home town is set around a navy base so the town always lays on a large service of remembrance. Today they had a parade made up of local clubs such as the beavers, guides and scouts, the Navy, civi leaders and the Royal british legion bikers.
The service was outside our local church. Here they held the minute silence and laid poppies on the wall memorial. Lovely words were spoken about the sacrifice our soldiers made for us while the band played music in the background.
After the service, we decided to head down to the beach. It was such a beautiful warm day that it allowed us to sit for a few hours and relax. The boys dug holes and collected shells while I practised taking photos on my new camera.
This was one of the most beautiful and perfect days of the autumn and I loved every minute of it. I am so grateful to live where I am and so proud of my town for coming out today to support our military.
