Remembrance Day in Catus

On a beautiful, sunny, autumn day a larger crowd than usual turned up in front of the war monument in Catus to commemorate the centenary of the 1st World war on le jour de l'Armistice or le jour du Souvenir. Unlike in the UK, in France the day is a national holiday and the blue cornflower, Bluet de France, is used symbolically rather than the poppy.
