  • Shameful example to set

    We were visiting a friend in Ilkley today and timed our visit so that we, with others, could pay our respects at the Memorial in the park on Grove Road to the many war dead of so many conflicts. About a dozen people congregated. As we waited for 11am, we read the names on the memorial and overheard one man telling another about the book he planned to write about the men from llkley who fought in the First World War. Very commendable and extremely interesting. A clock struck the hour and we stood, each remembering in our own way – except these two men who chattered on regardless. A small girl stood motionless with her mother – a perfect example of respect and dignity. One hopes they were shamed by her example. read more
