Since I became involved with the Air Cadet program I have come to realize how valuable it is to young people in their development not only for themselves, but for society in general. I took this photo some years ago at a Rememberance Day ceremony here in my small town where the local squadron takes part by placing a poppy on the cenotaph for each local resident who lost their life fighting for our country. Then they escort others to the front to lay a wreath.
The repeating vertical lines, the reflection in the floor, and the small peek at the poppies in this photo are key to how it it works functionally, but more important is the emotion it evokes. The look on the veteran’s faces and the cadet saluting trigger the most important feelings.
