Remembrance Sunday


'Greater love hath no man than this: that he lay down his life for his friends.'

The War Memorial in the grounds of Saltaire United Reformed Church, unveiled on 27 June 1920, at a Service of Remembrance after the First World War.   The church organ was restored in 1950, as a memorial to those who died in the Second World War.

  1. Remembering those who gave their lives, isn't hard. Remembering not to go to war until all possible avenues to peace have been explored, appears to be more challenging.

  5. A friend of mine crocheted a red poppy broach for me. It's important to remember those who fight for freedom.

  6. This reminds me of all the poppies I've seen at a memorial next to St. Paul's Cathedral, coming from the Millenium Bridge.
