These two atmospheric shots were taken by Lydiate photographer Keith Page whose photo’s I regularly publish on this blog. The weather conditions were poor last Tuesday so you can imagine how hard he had to work to get these great photos with Perch Rock and the fleet. Having said that I am sure there was day upon day when the weather was terrible during the war so maybe we were all reminded not only of those who fought, many of whom lost their lives, in the Battle of the Atlantic but of the conditions they had to endure and worse.

We will remember them.
