Nanny Bans Remembrance

Nanny Bans RemembranceToday 87 years ago, the First World War ended. This Sunday, in the UK, it is Remembrance Sunday.

Normally, in the seaside town of Walton Essex, war veterans fire maroons at the beginning and the end of the two minute silence on Remembrance Sunday hedl at the Royal National Lifeboat (RNLI) station.

However, this year Nanny has decided to ban the maroons.

It seems that Nanny's chums in the RNLI HQ have sent a memo to all their lifeboat stations, warning them not to fire maroons because they could misfire or debris could be blown back to shore by the wind.

John Halls, the chairman of the local Royal British Legion, said he was "very sad" that the decades-old tradition had come to an end.

"When we fire the lifeboat maroons in any coastal town where there is a memorial service, it is a reminder of the people who fought for this country."

The people of Walton now plan to use fireworks instead.

Doesn't Nanny disapprove of them as well?

    I notice that Nanny has apparently followed this up by banning Spitfires:

    Good job Nanny was a bit more liberal-minded 65 years ago!
