On Sunday, Dan attended the Remembrance Day service held at Framlingham where he gave a reading. Later in the afternoon he attend the service at Syleham. On Sunday a number of Remembrance Day services were held in towns and villages across Suffolk, as thousands of people paid their respects towards our brave Armed Forces and those who have died in conflict since the First World War. This year is especially poignant as it is a hundred years since the start of the Great War.
Remembrance Sunday is a special time of year, where people of all ages have the chance to pause, reflect and remember the sacrifices of those who have laid down their lives for us. The recent conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq has brought home to many in Suffolk the daily sacrifices made by British servicemen and women for their country, and it is always important to recognise the bravery and courage of those who have served and continue to serve in our Armed Forces.
Dan was very proud to see so many people in Suffolk showing their support for our Armed Forces.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
