For the first time in years I managed to get to the Memorial Gardens on Remembrance Sunday. There was a reasonable gathering, but it started to rain about 10 to the hour. Just as the Last Post was sounded the rain stopped and the sun came out, piercingly bright. Then we had rain and shine together. As the last wreath was being laid, a great gust of wind blew across the Trent, through the assembly, and out through the Mem Gardens. Strangely ethereal and moving.
