Armistice Day. . .

American doughboys "over there" in 1918.

On the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month. . .

It was interesting to watch the NFL game from Wembley on Sunday and to hear the comms talking about the poppy worn by everyone. I guess that is not a tradition in the States but I think they rather liked it.

I too like the idea of poppies as part of the memorial to the end of the Great War.
