It is Remembrance Day and a time for all generations in all our communities to remember those affected by all conflicts, and the great sacrifices made by everyone who served.

Poignantly it was 100 years ago today that the First World War ended. Our image from the Hillingdon archive shows the consecration of the Harlington War Memorial shortly after.

This day is a day to remember β€œWhen you go home, tell them of us and say, for their tomorrow, we gave our today.”
