After lunch Larry and the veterans are having a well earned rest back at the barracks. We are in the town square having a sandwich and chatting to Wesley. He knows everything about his country and the war and has just recorded an interview with us. He really believes that young people like him must remember “to stop it happening again”.

Later we are filming a ceremony here in the square and then driving to the site of the Halifax memorial which is to be unveiled then. It is by the field the plane crashed in – the plane – three of who’s crew are now buried in the cemetery – where we were thismorning.

Sun out = good.
