Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

CANTERBURY WARHORSE

Date: 22nd October 2018

Went to Canterbury Cathedral yesterday to carry out my normal Assisting Duty and was taken aback by this superb massive Horse in the Cathedral Grounds. I'd no idea why it was there but on reading the placard discovered that it has been erected to Commermorate the 8 MILLION (yes 8 MILLION) horses who died during WW1

Horses seem to be crossing my path of late.  Only a fortnight ago I had the pleasure of interviewing #Grant Hayter Menzies on his excellent book telling the story of Dorothy Brooke and the #BrookeCharity which cares for Equines and has done so since the 1930's.  The event was held at the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst which, of itself, was a very interesting place to visit.

Don't know how long this lovely creation will be in situ - but if you are anywhere near Canterbury it is worth a visit.
