Remembrance Day

Standard

So it’s Remembrance Day again and most people are giving a couple minutes of their day to honour the deeds of brave men and women. I’ve been listening to some appropriate music myself: “The July Drive”, a Newfoundland song about a young man from Kilbride who died in the Battle of the Somme; “The Band Played Waltzing Matilda”, a heart-piercing Eric Bogle piece about the horrors of war and the sacrifices made by many. I’ve plans to page through a couple books on war poetry as well, especially First World War Poems, edited by Andrew Motion. Theme day for me.

In other news, here’s the little news. Just a couple items for you.
