a time to remember

REMEMBRANCE Sunday, whether present at the solemn grandeur of the national ceremony at the Cenotaph or in a simple service at the village war memorial, is always a time of sadness and reflection. This year’s services will be particularly poignant as we mark, appropriately on Sunday 11 November, the centenary of the end of the war that prompted us to hold these annual commemorations, the war that gave us the poppy, the war that led us, for the first time, to give each soldier a marked grave in a cemetery near where he fell and a war so terrible that it reached into every home in the kingdom and across the empire. Six million men were mobilised; around 750,000 were killed and 1.6 million wounded. “Our massed armies, when mobilised, were…

field notes

Increasing development and the growth of urban attitudes are forcing hunts to consider amalgamating and sharing countries, warns the Masters of Foxhounds Association (MFHA). It is putting a process in place to ensure that more than a dozen hunts struggling due to lack of country and income can keep going. Under MFHA guidelines, a hunt must: have enough country to allow hounds out at least two days a week; a pack of hounds; suitable kennels; a reasonable level of local support; and enough money to cover costs – including one full-time and one part-time member of staff in the kennels. This November will see the first opening meet for the Essex with Farmers & Union Hunt following the amalgamation of Essex Foxhounds and Essex Farmers & Union. The merger was formally ratified…
