Remembering the forgotten

After the Parish Eucharist today we welcomed the Burma Star Association for their annual service. The numbers of veterans able to attend dwindle with each succeeding year, and aren't made up for by attendance from family representatives, but as long as there's only alive, members of our congregation will loyally gather and remember with them. And, no doubt continue to do so beyond the death of the final participant in that campaign, not least because the Burma Star memorial window which graces the north aisle will remain as witness to that 'forgotten army' of World War Two.
