The day began before 6 a.m. while the morning mist still hugged the hills around Grahamstown and the sun was struggling to break through the cloud cover.
This was when a group of four pipers and two drummers gathered at the 1820 Settlers’ Monument that overlooks the town to join in a world-wide commemoration of the signing of the armistice a hundred years ago.
The annual Remembrance Day Parade took place in Church Square later that morning:
It’s amazing to be able to see, and even watch, remembrances of the armistice from several places across the globe. The war to end all wars–alas, wishful thinking.
The ceremonies are moving and draw an interesting motley of people together – united for that time. Thank you for your comment.
Agree with above comment. Plus, moving pictures.
Thank you Albert.
Laat ons nooit vergeet nie…mooi foto’s, Anne!
