11 Nov, 2008 - ARMISTICE DAY FRANCE by Emil

 

 

  

On the 11th month  on the 11th day  in France they commemorate the ending of WW1  and today was the  90th Anniversary of  De L`Armistice

Ben and I  happened to be having some breakfast and were told that the service was taking place at the district hall so we both thought that it might be a nice gesture to attend and spend an hour amongst the locals commemorating this special occasion    Not many were present compared to our Anzac Services but the local school had numerous children there acting as a choir and did they sound sweet and beautiful                                 Although we could not understand the French language we understood the meaning as to what was being said  and it just seemed appropriate to be there
