Remembrance Day walk in Ashdown Forest

It was grey and drizzling as we were lead by Tony Osmand to the Remembrance Day ceremony at "The Airman's Grave".
Hundreds of other people also converged on the memorial for the brief and very moving ceremony of remembrance for the 6 man crew of the Wellington Bomber, which crashed here on return from a raid on Koeln on 31st July 1941. Click on the pictures to expand them.

A lot of people were already gathered around the memorial on the other side of the valley as we approached.
As you can see, they came in droves.

The panorama picture, above left? depending on your monitor, is more than 180 degrees. You need to click on it to appreciate it. And all the other pic's too!

Don't do this at home!
