Remembrance Day

I missed the Remembrance parade on Sunday. I usually see them march past, on the way to the church from the cenotaph, but this time I must have been doing something else when they passed by.
They didn't have very good weather for it.
But, the wreaths were laid, and the names of the war dead of Hay were read out (51 from the First World War and 17 from the Second World War). According to the B&R Father Richard preached a good sermon, reminding the congregation to think of present day refugees, and also praying for peace in Afghanistan and around the world.
