The 30,000th Last Post

On Thursday I was privileged to be at the 30,000th sounding of the Last Post at the Menin Gate in Ypres, representing David Cameron. It was gloriously well done and a fitting tribute echoed from Canberra to London, Hillsborough, Cardiff and Edinburgh.

Frantic Friday

I was very glad to quit sweltering London for home on Thursday evening. Nightmare journey – resolved to take the train as usual next week.
