Yes. Yes. Yes. I know. I don’t need to be told. I am only semi-stupid, not totally. I understand and appreciate that in the scheme of things a burnt up Jag is the least of the problems facing the Australians with these raging bushfires.
That said and noted, it is still distressing to see, what must have been a rather nice Jag, XJ8 or XJ12, destroyed. Another one, alas, bites the dust.
The reason I have two is that I am trying to preserve them for posterity. Enough said.

For the 3rd time, The Queen, now 93, watched from a balcony and let two generations of her male progeny lay the wreaths. This year, with time, alas, ticking away, she was more emotional than her usual calm, composed, regal self. She brushed away some tears. That was poignant. That she no longer lays the wreath herself is perfectly fine. We all understand and appreciate. She has done her duty — plenty.
This was her 68th Remembrance Sunday. Wow. See b&w image below when she attended with her dad, before she was queen.
