Remember the Stories



Remembrance Day sees many ceremonies in many places, with wreath laying at the heart. This is in Trinity Square Gardens by the Tower of London, where the memorial commemorates the 40,000 merchant navy seamen, not soldiers. They died keeping Britain's supplies running and for them the sea is their resting place. Take a moment if you visit to read some of the stories, they can be very poignant.

It looks like today is the day the 1,000,000 number turns up (see in the left margin). Remember, all you have to do to win is to take the screenshot nearest 1,000,000 and send it to me, the chances of getting exactly 1,000,000 are probably small so it's worth trying anywhere near. I may even give another prize to the furthest geographical visitor, or in fact for any other reason that takes my fancy. Have a go, why don't you? (Competition is now over - winners will be announced tomorrow)

Congratulations on reaching 1,000,000 visitors. Not a minor milestone at all!
