Blue Plaques

There has been a joint initiative not too from away from me by my local Civic Society and two Local History Societies to introduce Blue Plaques to mark those with historic links to the area. These Blue Plaques are quite familiar in various places across the Country and a fair few have started popping up and I thought it would be a good idea to start a Page on my Blog dedicated to them as they have historical value. If you are unsure of what a Blue Plaque is, or just want to know more about them, here are two links that might help:

Blogging by E-mail whilst on my Phone.

Ok. I've finally sorted it out so I can write a Blog by e-mail but through my phone. Does that make any sense? Either way it means I can now almost literally write a blog post anytime, any place, anywhere if I wanted to.

Remembrance Day 2011




This post is in honour of Remembrance Day, and the Soldiers that haven't returned home, not just during WW1 but from any of the Wars.

This a link to the Royal British Legion if you're interested in learning more about the Poppy Appeal and what The Royal British Legion do as a Charity.

In Flanders Field
by John McCrae, 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
