Remembrance Day

Have been overseas, hence no posts for some time.

Yesterday was Remembrance Day, aka 11 November, Armistice Day and (in the USA) Veterans' Day.

Here are two pics showing that while the day is still widely observed the manner of its observation changes.

I bought my poppy from the Chelsea pensioner who kindly allowed me to take her photo at Sloane Square tube station on 1 November.

The other photo shows the England and South Australian cricket teams observing a minute's silence at 11am local time yesterday. The match was interrupted to allow this to take place. (Is the pic clear enough for you to tell the difference between one teams's whites and the other's creams?)
