Last Post

As I approached the war memorial this evening, I heard the unmistakable first notes of the Last Post played on a bugle.
The memorial was flanked by two British Legion flag bearers with their flags lowered to the ground, and a small group of people stood in a semi-circle with their heads bowed as the bugler played.
There was a moment's silence, another short bugle call, and the flags were lifted.

I don't know what they were commemorating, but it was quite an eerie scene, under the full moon.

In memory of the three Hay men who died during the Battle of Passchendaele in 1917.
