So plan A this week was to be in sunny foreign climes celebrating 35 years of wedded bliss but this was kicked in to touch by a certain virus leaving me with some time off in a less sunny UK with little open to go and visit. Using this as an opportunity to put another tick on the 'to do' list we headed to Runnymede in Surrey to visit the Air Forces Memorial which was opened by HM The Queen back in 1953.
The memorial is dedicated to the 20,000+ RAF and Commonwealth airmen and women who lost their lives in WWII and have no known grave. Their names are inscribed in stone around the memorial. We found it a very peaceful and poignant place to visit.
