11/11

Walking through Green and St. James' Parks on Sunday, and listening to silence on the radio at 11 o'clock, I am struck for the first time in some years by the dignity of Armistice day. Given Iraq and Afghanistan I suppose we are more ready to remember war, and more aware of its consequences. The New Zealand War Memorial - introduced I think in 2006 - is particularly simple and moving: we shall remember them.
