Once in a blue moon a date comes that is special in terms of it’s form – today is such a day;
That is of course eleven o’clock on the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
This year however for the first time since the end of the war in 1918 this will occur on the eleventh year of the century. Therefore we have;
11 o’clock, on the 11th day, in the 11th month, in the11th year
We should always ensure that successive generations remember what happened between 1914 and 1918, perhaps this is a way of adding some extra interest for this year at least?
Lest we forget…
