Anyone else go down this afternoon.
Lovely tribute to all our fallen servicemen and women.
Nice to see a good number there paying their respects.

Who did they draw on the sand? I've taken a look on Wales Online and all I can find beach related is about some bloke cracking one off whilst perving at Langland.

Yeah, it was good. Kids raked in a soldier to add the the ranks. Just a shame we couldn’t stay until the tide washed over the picture of Dorothy Watson. I assume her slowly being washed asay was supposed to be the most symbolic part.

The missus and I did one too, as a mark of respect for some family members.
I thought it was really well organised.
Didnt see the tide come in either,just waited until after the poem was read.
