Watching this make me feel very humble and insignificant. We owe these people so much.

Yes a great service have done 3 myself in the past . It's awesome. Looking from the top of the Albert hall watching the poppies fall.

Pity the politicians don't learn from it. There would have been fewer poppies falling if the egotistical pratts hadn't sent the army off to an unwinable and wholly unnecessary war in Afghanistan.

I will always support the troops. But not the war. They should not be there.

I just received this text from someone, what a strange attitude to take about the remembrance:

"The government don't give a **** the rest of the year, soldiers coming home with injurys, then cutting their money"

I don't see the connection with remembrance day, or am I missing something?

It's very humbling, I quite agree, some of the stories from the families involved bring a lump to my throat.
