This is one of two  Elizabeth Crosses that were presented in Gloucester Cathedral last night by the Lord Lieutenant. They were presented to the families of an officer and a soldier who were killed in Northern Ireland by the IRA in 1972 and 1973.  They are a wonderful gesture by a grateful nation.  Both families were very moved by the ceremony and despite some second thoughts were deeply appreciative.  Its a long time ago and most of us forget the misery this campaign genereated. We do well to remember those who suffered.
