The Lewes District Council asked me to photograph the Remembrance Service in Lewes. The first to arrive for the ceremony were four Sea Cadets who were placed as sentinels around the War Memorial. For nearly an hour they stood stock-still, heads bowed, hands clenched by their sides. They somehow managed to never look up to watch what was going on around them. For me, there was something poignant about these two boys and two girls who looked so young to be solemn and motionless and honouring fallen soldiers.
As an American, I do love seeing the ceremonial clothes used on such occasions in England.
