It is that time of the year when we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us in two World Wars and in all subsequent (and current) conflicts. It has saddened me slightly to see fewer people wearing poppies this year – hopefully this is not the actual situation and just reflects where I have been.
In any event I believe any form of remembrance is good – I was especially pleased to see the Bomber Command memorial finally completed in London this year, I have not seen it yet, but intend to visit it when next in London. It has a particular interest to me because of my father’s time in the RAF at the very end of the war – he did not fly in anger, but was trained on Lancaster’s.
So it is good to see that there is now ‘an app for that’ – the RAF Benevolent Fund have launched an iPhone app which tells the story of the memorial and the crews and machines that it stands for – it is only 69p and the money goes towards the upkeep of the memorial.
So if you haven’t got a poppy yet and are sat reading this on your iPhone why not download the app and do some good…..
