He playing the bugle at my daughters school in assembly and doing a talk on what rememberance all about. He then playing at the cenotaph in town. I will also be giving my 2 mins.

    We never forget in this house, my grandfather was in WW2 - RAF, my father was in the Army and my brother is currently serving in the Army! My daughter was in the parade with the local Guides, something she does every year. We always observe our 2 minutes and I have to admit I do get really emotional about it.

    I know what you mean. My Grandfather was also in world war 2 and was a prisoner of war for 7 years. I was very proud when my son went on parade last year wearing his medals. He won't be able to this year as he is at sea in merchant navy. It was very emotional. It's a very proud feeling when your children are taking part too.

    I would definately get them out and wear them. He would be very proud to know you were wearing them I'm sure just as you must be proud of him to have been awarded them.
