Wings to Victory

Hubby George with Ann and Chas walked up Cooper’s Hill to the Airforce Memorial

“As only free men can, they knew the value of that for which they fought, and that the price was worth paying.”

“...wherever and for as long as freedom flourishes on the earth, the men and women who possess it will thank them and will say they did not die in vain.”
HM Queen Elizabeth II. 17th October, 1953 on the opening of the memorial

All quotes are taken from this very interesting website

If I climb up into Heaven, Thou art there; If I go to Hell, Thou art there also.
If I take the wings of the morning And remain in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there also shall Thy hand lead me; And Thy right hand shall hold me.

Engraved on the great north window of the shrine are words from the 139th Psalm, sometimes called the Airman's Psalm.

A fantastic view from the top of the memorial - Rock n roll is middle left where the paddle steamer is passing

This afternoon George and I walked to see the Magna Carta Memorial ...

... and we were pleased to see a flock ...

... as we climbed the long and winding road up to ...

... the John F Kennedy memorial
(for more information see our last visit)

... and back to Rock ’n’ Roll.
