Alison this Drabble came up on the random Drabble today when we have been remembering those who died in the wars of the twentieth century and in this century.  The Cathedral is the resting place of Birmingham's wreaths this year as the usual space is being redeveloped..  The number was surprising and brought home how many sections of society were involved, not just in fighting, but in fire watching, police, ambulance and hospital services,  These were just those from the civic service in the town centre, there would have been many more in the local parishs around Birmingham.

Thank you Alison it was moving to reread this on this special weekend.
