Welcome

Welcome to my newest blog. What is a kimberline you ask? Well where I live in Portland, Dorset, it is a nickname given to newcomers to the Island. Yes Portland is an Island seperated from Weymouth by a causeway. Its part of the Jurassic coast and I love living here. I will be posting lots of different things I hope you enjoy visiting here.

Armistice Day

ARMISTICE DAY


Here is a lovely link to explain  why we wear a poppy today.  http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/customs/remembrance/poppy.htm

A huge heartfelt thank you
At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years continuous warfare.


What is Remembrance Day?
Remembrance Day is on 11 November. It is a special day set aside to remember all those men and women who were killed during the two World Wars and other conflicts. At one time the day was known as Armistice Day and was renamed Remembrance Day after the Second World War.
Remembrance Sunday is held on the second Sunday in November, which is usually the Sunday nearest to 11 November. Special services are held at war memorials and churches all over Britain.
