    Is that anything to do with the Iraqi flag on your post? To me, rememberance day isn't just about remembering British men and women who died, but those of all nationalities. As I've already mentioned, my Polish Great Grandfather was shot by Nazi's, and my Grandad (his son) fought in the Warsaw uprising. Its nice to take some time out to remember those living or dead of all nationalities who've given there all for freedom.
    I'll agree with that

    Went to Langermarck cemetry in Belgium in Y11 on the battlefields trip, Langermarck is a german one and was totally different

    But as one British poppy wreath put very appropriately:

    "All soldiers are heroes no matter what nationality"
