Aircraft Wrecks of Kinder Remembrance Day Walk 10 Nov 2013
Click here for more info. If you are tempted to go on this walk/pilgrimage you will have to be physically fit as it over nine miles long and much of it is up hill over boggy terrain.
I filmed the video above last June and while this particular wreck is on Bleaklow and the Rembrance Sunday walk is on Kinder, you can expect to encounter a similar kind of terrain and landscape should you wish to participate.
On the subject of war and our glorious dead, a TC reader set me this link to an article in the Independent by Robert Fisk. Fisk writes about something that I am sure many of us think about at this time of year and that is the hypocrites and totally unworthy who adorn themselves with poppies. Fisk cannot be faulted when he states that many of the people he talks of would not know the difference between the Dardanelles and the Somme. How true is that? On a personal note I must comment on how my TV screen was recently polluted by footage of the odious Harriet Harman and yes, she too was wearing a poppy. Now if that is not an affront to our war patriotic fallen I don't know what is!
