Hull Royal Navy memorial at 11 o'clock this morning.
Only myself and my wife there.
I placed the cross you can see in the middle above the wreath and when I got home I got a message from my son. He had placed the other cross just behind the wreath 10 minutes before we got there.
For you sun dodgers, 2 of the wreaths are from the Hull Submariners Association. Think one may be last years, amazed it was still there.
 
BLM = Bobbies Like Music?

PC Plod is already lining up his excuses for the Commander's Table.

But he veered too close to our line, Sir
But he was definitely not wearing a mask., Sir.
But I think he played a bum note or two, Sir.
But I harbour an inbred hate for all Haggis Yafflers, Sir.

Sir honest, he was strangling a cat.

When I left in '63 you would always see deep sea trawlers in the Humber estuary coming or going to the northern fishing grounds and the terrible conditions they worked in and sitting alongside almost into the city centre.
I would like to think that there is still a healthy respect for the RN by these tough trawlermen and their families especially after the Cod Wars which hopefully would account for the last years wreath still being there.
