Sombre reminder...

10th November 2017

Suitably overcast skies... resulting in an understated look to a memorial for the allied landings in Normandy, France, on June 6, 1944. Taken on the day before this year's Armistice Sunday, the memorial is located in Milton Country Park on the outskirts of Cambridge.

Armistice Day is commemorated every year on 11 November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compi├Ęgne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front. Since then, it has become the day on which the UK remembers all those killed in conflict.
