We will remember
Nov 8 2008 by Val Javin, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
TOMORROW is the day when publicly at least, the nation will pay tribute to those who lost their lives in its service – and continue to do so – in conflicts around the world.
There will be pomp and much ceremony at the Cenotaph in Whitehall when the royal family and our top politicians will lead the Remembrance Day tributes. But there will be many more scenes of quiet remembrance held in towns and villages across the country. Huddersfield and its outlying communities will be doing the same.
And there does seem, now more than ever, and despite the huge financial worries affecting many families, a mood of determination in the country to remember what is important and that very much includes those who gave their lives so that we could all have a future.
