100 Years Ago...Remembered

Remembrance Sunday
Brinklow Village, Warwickshire


St John the Baptist Church -
Look closely and you will see 
glass silhouettes of two soldiers sitting on the bench above.


Cascade of hand-crafted poppies.
Today marks the 100 year anniversary of the end of hostilities
in the First World War at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.



There are many displays throughout the Village.  A wonderful effort by all.
Below is a display focusing on WWI Tank Corp.


Remembrance Sunday is held in the United Kingdom 
and the Commonwealth of Nations as a day 
"to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth 
military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts'.


************************

Greetings.  It has been a long time.  I have been
busy but still taking photographs here and there.  
Brinklow Village is located a short distance from Coventry, about
10 minutes from my home.  When I saw all the
hard work that had been undertaken (and believe me
there is so much more than what I show here), I 
decided I must share.

Warmest Best Wishes to you All!

Coventry City Football Club Celebrate

Today's Promotion Tour 
around Coventry City...
and right past our street.
Yippee!!!





It wasn't long ago that Coventry City Football Club (founded in 1883)
was in the top league of English professional football.
In 2001 after 34 years in the Premier League they were relegated
 and the slide began. 
In 2017 the club was relegated to League Two, the fourth tier.

Last Monday, CCFC successfully beat Exeter at Wembly and won
promotion to League One.

A new beginning?  Hopefully!!!

Frosty Morning

Coombe Country Park


The Oak Tree to the right is one that
I photograph often.  But to be fair,
I haven't published a photo of it since 2016.


So here it is on a frosty December morning, 2017.
For more photographs in and around this tree,
please follow the link - HERE.

Thatched Roof Thursday #94 - Meriden

Maxstoke Lane


This is a 17th Century, Grade II listed thatched cottage
located in the village of Meriden.  
Meriden is about 8 miles from Coventry.

Traditionally, Meriden has been regarded as the 
'centre of England'.


I'm still on the lookout for at least 6 more 
thatched cottages so that my collection will have 
100 :).
