ADRIAN Mourby's mother has a clearer perspective on the subject of "honouring" the nation's war dead than her son. The service on Remembrance Sunday merely reflects on a national stage what takes place around war memorials throughout the land.
The military presence around the Cenotaph in Whitehall is a commemoration in a typically understated British way of the sacrifice of so many citizens of this country and those allied to it.
Perhaps the most impressive element of the ceremony is the parade of ex service organisations comprising men and women who march past with a pride that age and infirmity cannot dim. A less triumphalist commemoration is hard to imagine.
