11th of the 11th

I did my normal stopping the car for a quite moment of reflection this morning at 11am. This small act of rememberence and respect was instilled in me as a child at school and has stayed with me to date.

I was a bit disapointed to notice a column of school children herded by a couple of teachers walking down the street, going about the normal business of the day. We collectively made a promise all those years ago to never forget but if we don't pass this on, how can we?
susie

I'm with you on this.
We stopped for a while in Thurso, not many others seemed to.
Each to his own, but we shouldn't ever forget.
mrsbradey

I will never forget!

........and I made someone buy a poppy today!!

Teachers, eh!!!

School in Watten decided it was only a minute at 11
Meanwhile wick high school thought 2 minutes at 10.30 was ok
Mind it's what you come to expect of teachers it's all about them and what they think is ok.

The purpose of this thread, I believe, was to honour the memory of the many people who died for Great Britain and her people.

I remember both of my grandfathers at this time. One was in the trenches in the Somme and was gassed. He lived many years but his lungs were in a terrible way and he couldn't do things that he loved dearly, like gardening and walking. My other grandpa was one of the first men taken from the army to start up the fledgling airforce, the Royal Flying Corps, he was drafted to the Corps because he didn't mind heights. He was shot down twice during reconnaissance flights pin-pointing German gun positions. I was raised in his house, he hardly ever spoke. Smoked his pipe, read the paper, did the crossword.
My father joined the army when he was 14, he lied about his age and went abroad at the start of the 2nd war. He had good eyesight and was trained as a sniper and taught to kill men.He was shot and stabbed several times and eventually came back to Britain having been hit in the head by shrapnel. This legacy haunted him and his frightening mood swings haunted his wives and children for decades.
My brother joined the Royal Navy when he was 15, lied about his age, he was still aboard when we went to war with the Argentinians. Many of his shipmates and friends were badly injured in mind and body. David came home physically unscathed but his mind was different.
You all have similar things to Remember.

Let us remember them all, lest we forget.

Two friends of mine were also in the Royal Navy at the time of the Argentina affair, both came back with severe mental problems, one was eventually diagnosed with PTSD, and the other, became a paranoid schizophrenic. He was suicidal and attempted to end his life on many occassions, breaking almost every bone in his body!!

Someone I worked with joined the forces to fight in the first Iraq conflict, when he come back to work 3 or 4 years later, he was just a shadow of his former self, he had become quite disturbed, agressive and had lost his sense of humour!

As far as I know (having lost touch through progress of life) these guys are still alive and still suffering.

I think sometimes that those that die on the battlefield, might have been some of the lucky ones. I have the greatest respect for all who have fought in wars to protect OUR FREEDOM!

We must remember them FOR EVER!

again, yes.

i have a lot of friends who are, or were, in the military, mostly in the navy but some in the raf. luckily, none  have been killed or physically injured, and none appear to be seriously psychologically injured, at least not outwardly. thankfully.

people may not support war, or support the governments that sent our friends to war, but we can surely support the  people who go to war for us.
RagnarRocks

Well Cait
Having done my service and also a few active service tours don't you think I have a bit more right than you to mention teachers who do not adhere to the two minute timing for armistice.
Your points are from what I consider an outsider on this subject. It has never affected or touched your life so you have no notion what you're on about [/list]

Only quoting from my own experience, nothing to do with what HE thinks, just I happen to agree with HIM in this point!

If that make me as bad as HIM, then I can live with that!!

Well between the three of you, you've managed demean a post that was I'm guessing meant as a mark or respect to the fallen but now is just the usual crap you spout !

Well, I apologise, but will say in my defense;

   I had actually forgotten what the original post was about, I do tend to just use the previous two or three posts to gauge my response. Should threads continue from start to finish in the theme in which they started?

In no way were any of my comments in this thread disrepectful of, or demeaning to, anyone, serving, served, or the fallen.

I have the most respect for all those who serve their country in battle, and always will have!
