... Princess Diana Memorial Trail through the park and saw a lot of pretty birds. As we got closer to Big Ben we stopped and had a beer at Ales & Pies.

The GPS that Pete Christie loaned us is wonderful. I can input the satellite co-ordinates for the next location and ...

... found a restaurant but unfortunately it was very slow & we had to bolt our dinner down if we were to make the ceremony at Menin Gate. We got there with three minutes to spare & could not believe the number of people crowding every vantage point. This meant we never saw the ceremony which is performed by the local fire brigade. We certainly heard it & the Last Post as everyone ...
