The Troops return from Afghanistan

Last Saturday Liverpool troops that had returned from Afghanistan paraded to honour their fallen comrades.

Plus ça change plus c'est la même chose....



  1. The photos in this post are full of emotion and very stirring...the close-ups of their faces---seeing their expressions---tells all.

  2. Scriptor, I looked at these with tears. I have friends who are serving their now and have the privilege of pastoring many who go back again and again. The pay a great price for our freedom and I'm grateful to/for them. Thank you for posting these pictures and reminding me of our partnership with your nation. It is a privilege.

  3. My Dad would have been there - he went to all these sort of things. On another note have you seen whats happening in Wootten Bassett- the next village to where I live now ?
    This now happens here every week - its so sad to know that

  4. We can never thank our men too much, but I wish there was no need. A stirring post. I am so proud of them all.

  5. The sight of such brave young men always brings a lump to my throat. God bless them one and all, and all their fallen comrades.

  6. Gosh, you Brits sure know how to put on a good show! Very stirring and emotional! We colonials are so understated, nothing happens when our guys come home, no five minutes of fame for them!
    Great post.

  7. Thank you for taking the trouble with this John. Nice to see they let the wounded parade, not nice they were wounded you understand.
    About time we had a job swap, these lads in Westminster and those avaricious beggers....Well who cares.

  8. Thank you for sharing this!!my husband was released..done with service as his troop was sent over. He was torn and struggled with the decision to not reup. Being one of the older and more experienced fellows in the unit..it was hard on him. He ended up deciding to be done. Blessing to all who serve. Wonderful post.
    Btw..your quote on the top is his favorite one too!! Sarah
