In the UK, Remembrance Day is on 11 November. It is a special day set aside to remember all those men and women who were killed during the two World Wars and other conflicts. Remembrance Sunday is held on the second Sunday in November, which is usually the Sunday nearest to 11 November. Special services are held at war memorials and churches all over Britain ceremonies take place at cenotaphs all over UK.

Here are some pictures of the last Remembrance Sunday in our town:
our mayor (in red robe), a priest who led the ceremony (in white robe), leaders of military, the councillors and mmh... is that George Bush standing next to our mayor??

the veterans

our cenotaph

people took turns laying down a wreath of poppies at the cenotaph.

the people... can you spot a dog lover? :)

I didn't bring my dog to the ceremony but some people did.
Here are some of them:

a spaniel, a border collie, a miniature schnauzer, and a lab.
I don't know why they all looked the other way, not really interested in the ceremony.

a shy staffie... the picture doesn't do him justice, he's gorgeous

and last but not least

3 Bichon Frises, they remind me of PT's FizzGig and Fritz :)

I think that is a special remembrance. I'm glad you shared it. It is sort of like our Veteran's Day, here in the US.

It looks like a very nice ceremony. And it is nice that all of the cute dogs could attend too (I won't tell Snowy that there were dogs there and you didn't take her ;)). I want that lady's coat :D.
