‘Lest we forget’


War and Peace

When I was about fourteen I played the cornet with the Staveley Works Junior Brass Band. On the first Sunday following Armistice Day we always provided musical accompaniment to the Remembrance Service at the war memorial on Brimington Common, near Chesterfield, Derbyshire. It was always very cold but an extremely poignant event because of the quiet and sombre mood of the service.

This photograph is to remind me that even though the poppy is a strong visual symbol of remembrance and the importance of peace, we should never forget that war is always lurking in the background.
