Armistice Day, Bentlawnt Cross Roads, Shropshire

Amistice DayThirty-four school children and twenty-five locals gathered around the British Legion bench by the side of the road at the remote Bentlawnt crossroads.  It was windswept and grey but this slightly eccentric setting only adds to the poignancy of the occasion.  Five children from Hope School read out the names of the dead from both wars.  Not a single car came along but if it had we would have made it stop and observe the silence.
