Darkness…

Today’s word is darkness and I am continuing the war theme from yesterday’s post.

My picture is of the Ardrossan War Memorial, taken earlier this afternoon on a grey and stormy day.

I am posting it in black and white, as the starkness of the cross stands as a poignant reminder of the darkness of war and of the suffering, pain and despair it brings.

Silence…

Today’s word is silence.

My focus is on the silence of remembrance: my picture is the Dasher Memorial on Ardrossan Seafront.

On 27 March 1943, there was an explosion on board the HMS Dasher and 379 crew were lost to the sea.  And every year, on Remembrance Sunday, we remember them in the silence.
