"Taxi for McNair" called the hall porter, as my husband Clive and I stepped out into the lovely sunshine and into the awaiting cab, asking the London cabbie for Buckingham Palace.

The day was Thursday 26th June 2014, and leaving Lancaster Gate, we were soon driving through the outskirts of Mayfair. With its bright flowerbeds and then on passing the magnificent green trees of the Mall as we drove along the red tarmac of the Palace precincts, where our driver stopped at the corner-drop off point. Clambering out of the cab, I grabbed the two sturdy hospital sticks, which my kind GP had especially organised for me (after my cry for help realising that with my poor mobility, that I needed something reliable to lean on!)

From 5 August 2014 to 11 November 2014, a major artistic installation entitled 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' will see the Tower of London's famous dry moat filled with over 800,000 ceramic poppies to create a powerful visual commemoration for the First World War Centenary.

Turning the Pages ceremony is held four times a year (Mar, Jun, Sept and Nov) at the Aldershot Garrison Church attended by QARANC personnel from local units along with QARANC Association members.
