First wreaths laid in Kilkeel this morning. We were blessed with blue skies and birdsong. Somehow so appropriate on this day of all days.

A very fitting Remembrance Service at Mourne Cenotaph this morning.

Members of the Schomberg Society were honoured to have performed a Guard of Honour at the Cenotaph in memory of those who gave their lives for our freedom today.

We Will Remember Them. #Armistice2018
