I've just returned from a very moving Armistice ceremony.  As it is every year.  The French not only remember the dead - all the dead - from WW1 on this day but also celebrate the coming of peace.

Having recently seen "before and after" aeriel shots of both Passchendaele and Verdun curtesy of the List, I can fully understand why this is a day where business takes second place to remembrance, reflection and contemplation.

France is closed today.
