Remembrance Day 2020

Raspberry Pi RGB LED Matrix Display - showing field of poppies

Each year, I normally attend a service at the local war memorial to remember members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty. This has usually been in uniform as a member of the Scouts or in the past as a member of St. John Ambulance.

Due to the Covid-19 situation I will not be attending this year, but I will be observing the 2 minutes silence at home, standing on my doorstep in my Scout uniform, along with my family.

I have also created the following video which is playing outside my house using a Raspberry Pi and a Matrix display.

For more details see Raspberry Pi Matrix RGB LED Display project.

Please stay safe, wear your poppy, and remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom.
