Remembrance Sunday Leeds – 2

Picture showing 3 members of the crew of the Ark Royal at Leeds Remembrance service.

These two pictures are both from the city of Leeds Remembrance memorial service and parade.

I did not realise it until after I had taken these photographs but this will be the last time the crew of HMS Ark Royal visit Leeds. The aircraft carrier will be decommissioned by the end of the year, this being part of the recent defence cuts, sorry review. Just announced on the BBC, Ark Royal will berth in North Shields on Friday for the five-day farewell visit. If anyone from Leeds wants to catch a final look at the Ark Royal this will be the nearest and last chance.

Picture of the Commanding officer HMS Ark Royal, Capt Jerry Kyd alongside Lt Col from the Parachute Regiment lays wreath at the Leeds war memorial.

If anyone from Ark Royal reads this please ask LA(Phot) Abbie Gadd if she would email me on this blog re: her photo from this Sunday, thanks.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
