Remembrance day in UK

This is each year, before the St. John's Church in Blackheath, London. Remembering all those who fall while serving their country.

A minute of silence, poppies on the dress, veterans gathering and speaking.

My grandfather was a veteran of World War 1 and wounded for all his life. Alas, it made him also very irritable for his family.

He did like me. I remember, when he came to see me and told me "Ask any question and I will try to answer. If I can not, I will look in the books to find it for you."

There was no web yet, more then 70 years ago. But I learned to ask and I learned that one can find answers in books.

Today, I think of him. Grandpa Emil.
