“The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime”
These words were spoken by the then Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey, on the eve of World War One, although this is still debated.
Tonight, lights went out all over Coventry, replaced by candles, each commemorating the serviceman and women whom died.
Make no mistake, for our lives and our freedoms, we have the fallen to thank. They who sacrificed their own lives so that we could live.
We will remember them
Lest we forget.
We Will Remember Them
R.I.P and god bless you, to those who died in the war, you’ll never be forgotten
For those who served and those who died, I light my candle. RESPECT
