The cerebral U.K. ‘The Guardian’, as ever, makes a good point. Got me thinking. Do Catholics do anything about Remembrance Day?


Now please, stand up, erect, and join me in a rousing rendition of ‘Rule Britannia’.

Trust me you will feel rejuvenated and righteous after that.

I have always liked the “ol’ devil”. My kind of guy. Quite a rake in his time and even now I think.

Wow. 92!

I always check, each year, for a picture of him with the mandatory red poppy.

He never fails me.

He is THE MAN.

The embodiment of the traditional Commonwealth service man.
