With Dad… We will remember…


dad-with-medalsAt 11 a.m. this morning I will be standing with fellow councillors and other representatives from the Yeovil area in remembrance…

At this time I also reflect on attending the remembrance parade at Old Steine in Brighton whilst growing up, carrying the flag on behalf of my Scout Troup. Looking back on what it meant to my dad, who served and was wounded in WW2. Remembering what it meant to him and his peers, thoughts of lost comrades that for some reason was never discussed, though we all knew the feelings were present.

It is with regret that my dad passed away before I was elected to Council, though I know he would have been proud. No prouder than he would have been today to stand by my shoulder at the memorial remembering with me those that served for King/Queen and Country that we all should be free.

He will be with me today, not in body, but we will remember…
