    Have been watching the ceromony on telly and just have to say uttmost respect to everyone that was involved in that.

    The bravery that they must have had is mindboggling, I know I would never be able to do something like that.

    Lets not forget what happened :!:

    They will always be remembered for their courage,those who are still alive and those who passed away.

    Ditto that one matey.
    Doing a small concert somewhere -in a pub- in barnsley later which has a similar kind of theme I think.

    Here here. May they all rest in peace. And may we never forget what our freedom cost them.

    These guys gave the ultimate sacrifice.

    i know how many of me and my mates would and it would be one of us (if we're lucky).

    as has been said, lets not ever foorget what the 'germans' did to us, and we as bandsmen who play every year at remembrance sunday can keep this alive. we can see what it means to the soldiers still alive, lets take it on for them.

    ps, the 'germans' refered to above probably wanted war as much as we did, and they are a completely different bunch of people to all the germans I know.

    These are important sentiments expressed by us all and equally important is to carry on remembering when the last of these old soldiers have finally left us. It will be all to easy to let the ceremonies slip once that has happened but a hell of a lot of bandsmen lost their lives too.

    I am sure the band movement will play its part in carrying on.

    It's a strange attitude to have...not only hundreds of thousands of English , but Scotch , Welsh , Irish and Commonweath troops died to give us the freedom we have now .
    War does not solve anything...just watching the D-Day celebrations , yes we should remember the lads who didnt come back home.
