Words hollow for some

November is the month we remember those that gave their lives in the time of war.

Is the Royal British Legion going to make the same stand they did last year on the night at The Royal Albert Hall when they snubbed the Merchant Navy veterans by not letting them pay their respects to their shipmates and seamen, who gave their lives and never came home to their loved ones?

It is a proud night for these veterans and to know the Queen and Prince Philip will be there, a night to remember.

But I am sorry to say when we hear those words “We will remember them” it will be a hollow sound to some.
