If you are venturing out and about on the fells in the Lake District on Sunday the 11th November, especially at 11am, please spare a thought for those that have lost their lives to give us the freedom we all enjoy today and to those still defending our country.
Please also be aware that several of the SOTA / Wainwright summits will have a memorial service on them on that day, most notable being Great Gable.
Castle Crag is also another summit that I am aware off.
On Great Carrs there is also the Halifax memorial just a few yards to the south west of the top so there may be a service held here or those that wish to remember the death of 8 brave air crew, their doomed bomber breaking the silence on this lofty peak in 1944.
As a courtesy and also out of respect please honour the two minutes silence and services being held.
