Apples, Birthday Misc and Diss' Remembrance Day - 11th November 2006

Another miscellaneous round-up: Nosher's apple harvest (the product of which was turned in to 59 bottles of juice); Isobel's birthday in the Kingston Arms in Cambridge; a few scene of Cambridge (and a small plate of chillies); some sunsets and fireworks; on Saturday in Diss, a clueless Nosher wanders around and finally twigs that "something is going down" shortly before it's 11am. Literally the whole town stops and falls utterly silent, preceded by the Last Post, nicely played by Richard out of the Salvation Army band, and a proclamation from the town crier, and followed, after the two-minute silence, by the reveille and the proclamation "Diss Town: carry on!"

In Diss, the Royal British Legion flag is prepared

There was a smile shortly after this photo. Honest.

On Diss' Market Place, the crowds assemble under the grey skies

Richard from the Sally Army plays the Last Post, inaugurating the two-minute silence

The bish of Diss gives a reading

The Mayor of Diss

A veteran with a lot of medals and a kid with a lot of badges on his head

Later, by the Mere, an old couple are mobbed by a flock of seagulls for the bread they carry

Out of Nosher's office window on the Science Park in Cambridge, an autumnal tree is nicely lit by the setting sun
