Remembrance Sunday


While most people were tucked up in bed in the early hours of Sunday morning the Ajax and other were steaming for Newlyn having an uncomfortable ride home to Newlyn...


all set for 11am, the War Memorial built on the old battery site - hence the name Battery Rocks... 


later, the Imogen III taking ice and the Ajax all et to sail again...


replacement wheels for a beam trawl...


hard men need hard hats...


facing the stiff breeze and on the lookout for breakfast...


compared, the old and the new roof...


the Fishermen's Shack, now open for business in the Fish Festival Office...


the Story of Newlyn Harbour, ideal Christmas gift for anyone with an interest in the history of Newlyn...


early morning sun...


and breezy...


the Brit all set to take ice...


after the Millenium has taken hers...


the St Georges is looking spruce after her refit at Parkol Marine Engineering...


the memorial to commemorate all those...


 who died serving their country from Newlyn...


the enduring symbol of the poppy...


the usual suspects are busy getting Newlyn Christmas lights erected...


just arrived, the Irish flagged trawler, Fragrant Cloud has just arrived after a 10 day trip off Start Point...


with the through traffic temporarily stopped in respect...


shortly before 11, the Union Jack is lowered to half-mast...


then, following two minutes silence, wreaths are laid by representatives of the local armed services...


the flag raised again...


the service over, local people and traffic begin to move again.
