Calm Before the Storm
"At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we shall remember them." From her seated position on the bench, Jenna had a fantastic view of Alexander Gardens in front of her. Situated in the centre of Cardiff, the small garden area held the city's war memorial, and it was remembrance day. Around 500 people were gathered around the memorial, some veterans, some currently serving, others just the public coming to pay their respects. Jenna in a sense was both serving and public. Where she sat she was much further from the memorial than most. However, what she was more interested in was the gun salute that would go off at precisely 1100 hours. The gun was around 400 yards in front of her, and the memorial a further 500. James stood at the gun, his hand poised in the air ready to give the signal. James was 104 Royal Regiment Artillery, and Jenna was a Probationary Instructor with the Army cadet adult volunteers. After meeting James, she'd become inspired by military service, and after realising she could never join the armed forces as her condition coeliac disease prevented her, becoming a volunteer with the cadets was the next best thing.
