11/11/14 - 100 years on; gone but not forgotten. The soldiers and personnel of so many conflicts to allow us the life we lead today.
I have had the enormous privilege today to accompany the School council to the Eckington Memorial to pay our respects.
The children behaved in a manner befitting the school and the occasion. We joined a group of locals who were also paying respects - war veterans amongst them. After the silence, which was impeccably observed, one of the veterans thanked us for attending and doing so with great respect.
We also celebrated the fact that their sacrifices were not in vain and that we should be thankful for the deeds they did in our name. Photos were taken at the time, and thanks to Mr Jones's daughter for doing so.
