I attended the memorial service at the cenotaph on Sunday.

Congratulations to the organisers: it was a moving and dignified service. Special mention, I feel, should go to all the youngsters who took part. Many of those who played in the bands and some members of the Armed Forces are still in their teens. The occasion was made more poignant by the large numbers of young children who attended whose behaviour was superb.
