    These are the graves of the last Canadian Servicemen killed overseas and never repatriated They are lonely and forgotten, buried in a small and obscure churchyard in Southern England.

    Those ancient U Nialls from Donegal were a randy bunch.

    If you are ever in Edinburgh, the Scottish National War Memorial is located in the castle and displays the Rolls of Honour of Scots servicemen and women from 1914 to date.

    It is one of the most poignant and moving memorials I have seen and well worth the visit.

    I think it strikes the right balance between remembrance and respect, including all branches of the armed services and auxiliary corps but does so in a relatively understated way without glorifying war or empire.

    I have been a few times, and always taken time for a few moments of quite contemplation - but I was last there 2 years ago whilst the remembrance service was taking place and that was certainly an experience.

    It was designed by a kinsman of mine.
