Today is Memorial Day in the USA.

On Memorial day here in the USA we remember the sacrifice of those who served. Remembrance Day in the UK is the same. We were wondering the other day when the tradition of wearing a poppy began so googled it!

Here's the story about Remembrance poppy

Going to personal remembrances, I often think of both my parents on these two days. Both were veterans of WWII and indeed met because of that war. Dad was US Navy, and Mom was in the British WRENS.

Here is a photograph of Dad and me looking at the Sea King helicopter at RAF Coltishall.

Thank you all servicemen and women of both countries who served.
