For two minutes, on 11th November 2018, the packed Parish Church of Ss Simon & Jude, Cockshutt, fell silent in hushed tribute to all those who have died whilst serving our country, keeping us safe from harm.
Peacefully sitting amongst us were the silent silhouettes. Ethereal, There, But Not There, they provided a channel for our thoughts and prayers as we tried to comprehend the debt we owe to all those who have fallen in the name of justice, peace and freedom.
As the names of our WW1 fallen were called out and our attention focused on the hundred years centenary of the 1918 Armistice, it really did feel as if we had finally brought Our Boys home.
We Will Remember Them.
