It’s been a long, long year, and event no. 18 was in Wrexham on Saturday, which is the furthest north we’ve travelled so far.
But the arrangements ran very smoothly; we were together in a marquee with Steve Williams, who does a brilliant presentation on all sorts of details about trench warfare, some of which is enough to make your stomach turn!
We were crowded out all day as usual, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Various relatives from this end of the country came to see us, and all in all it was a great pleasure to be there.
On Sunday we attended the Armistice Day commemoration and service in Ludlow, and while we had been slightly disappointed not to be involved in any of the events to mark the actual day itself, in the end it was a much-needed break between this and our next event.
