Remembrance Sunday yesterday in South Shields was memorable for the awfully harsh light for photographers, far too contrasty (just see those shadows) and difficult to find good positions that offered some hope. So this year's series of pictures may be a little shorter than usual - ahem.
Of course there was a very large crowd at Westoe Cenotaph, where the service was conducted by the Rev. Paul Kennedy of St. Michael and All the Angels, and Fr. Michael Wemyss of St. Bede RC church. Wreaths were laid by the Mayor, Cllr. Eileen Leask, the Mayoress, Cllr. Olive Punchion, South Shields MP former Foreign Secretary David Miliband, council leader Cllr. Iain Malcolm, and representatives of the armed services, the police, fire brigade, youth groups, schools, and community organisations also including the Badlanders Motor Cycle Club.
Although it is November the weather was warm pleasant, but just far too bright for us snappers, we did a lot of moaning about it between ourselves.
