THIS year the eyes of the Nation have
been on Liverpool, with the amazing Poppy display, called the Weeping Window.
The 10,000 ceramic poppies outside St George's Hall, Liverpool, are part of the
remembrance display at the Tower of London in 2014. Major Roy Bevan, MBE kindly
took photos of the events at St George's Hall, on Remembrance Sunday for us. Our
Editor covered Formby and Southport on Remembrance Sunday, 8 November 2015;
video footage shot at them by us can be seen on this report. Also on
Armistice Day, 11 November 2015, we attended a service at Formby Village
Cenotaph. Then we attended a simple service next door, next to war graves of
Polish Air Force World War II airmen, who are buried in war graves at Our Lady
of Compassion Church in Formby. Ending the services were prayers at the
Village's World War 1 Memorial, also in the grounds of Our Lady of Compassion
Church. Video of the Formby services can be found on the this report as well.
