Newsletter – 15 November 2018
November 15, 2018 Newsletter
Over the weekend, we saw incredible scenes all round the UK, Europe and further afield as people gathered in their thousands to mark the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, when the guns finally fell silent at the end of the First World War. With one notable exception (well, it WAS raining), world leaders marked the event in Europe in what was a beautiful and moving day for anyone watching. The annual commemoration at the cenotaph in London was well-attended and there have been events all over the world to mark the occasion, from ceremonies to the incredible work of director Peter Jackson in restoring First World War film and bringing these long-gone times back to life in an incredible way. We highly recommend you take the time to watch it, if you haven’t already.
During the First World War, almost a million men and women from the UK and its then Empire lost their lives. The bodies are still being found all over the battlefields, and they are laid to rest with full honours, even if they are unidentified. None are ever buried without ceremony, something to be genuinely proud of.
Sometimes, however, identification is possible, even after 100 years. Here’s an opportunity to play your part in solving one of these mysteries. Can you identify any of the men in this photograph?
Finally, like his sons, Prince Charles has been a great supporter of our armed forces during his long, long time as heir to the throne. As he marks his 70th birthday, we say; happy birthday sir!

A German Shepherd, Doberman and a cat have died.
All three are faced with God who wants to know what they believe in.
The German shepherd says: "I believe in discipline training and loyalty to my master."
"Good," says God. "Then sit down on my right side. Doberman, what do you believe in?"
The Doberman answers: "I believe in the love, care and protection of my master."
Ah," said God. "You may sit to my left."
Then he looks at the cat and asks, "And what do you believe in?"
The cat answers: "I believe you're sitting in my seat."
