Just returned from our usual half-term trip to London. One of the things we really wanted to see was the memorial to those who lost their lives serving in Bomber Command during WWII.
here and another site offers more photographs
Having taken part in several Colonial games a detour to the Embankment to see this statue of General Gordon seemed in order.
We also travelled to the East End to visit the V & A Museum of Childhood, which proved to be a fascinating day out. The adults enjoyed the exhibits at least as much as the children, remembering toys from years gone by (too many years in some cases). There were examples of Britains' soldiers and other manufacturerers, but what really caught my eye was this photograph.
