poppyNorth Cyprus News – Remembrance Sunday 9th November 2014

Remembrance Day is celebrated on the island each year, but it seems such a solemn occasion is to be marred this year by a British Royal snub in north Cyprus. How very sad that the day to commemorate those who died for our freedoms should be marred with this petty act.

Especially poignant because this year celebrates the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War, World War 1. Surely all who fought in all conflicts and those who lost loved ones in all wars have the right to remember the sacrifices made by them and to expect all differences to be puts aside, if only for this day. Have we learned nothing?
