rememberance day

i was at a meeting last night which finished just before 6pm so we could go out and watch a couple of old planes fly over and drop pettles on london. so we did.
unfortunately it was dark and although i saw the fly by i didn’t get a decent photo so won’t show you (this never normally stops me!).
lots of the bridges were lit up in red and the whole town was full of people.
projections on a building and dropped petals:

and i finally found out what these lights were for:
the search lights remained searching way after the planes had gone:
