Remembrance Sunday 1918-2018

 

 

They shall grow not old
as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning,
We shall remember them.

The War of the Clowns soon takes over the streets of France, and a fearsome new weapon of cream and mirth makes its entrance: the double-layered wide dish custard pie. The German clowns won’t know what hit them.

Vijay’s classic GIFs 2007-2011 – 342

 

This GIF of a jet fighter on fire gives me goosebumps. It comes from the Transformers franchise and features the character Starscream, who was an Air Commander of the Energon Seekers and a ‘Decepticon’.

VJ Day 2015

 

In honour of those who made the ultimate sacrifice on today, the 70th anniversary of VJ (Victory in Japan) Day, not only those who fought in the battles of the Far East, but those who were killed in the nuclear attacks on Nagasaki and Hiroshima in August 1945.
