The Week in National Mourning: The Guards of Honour

I queued five and a half hours alone on Thursday night into Friday morning, and just as I was about to be admitted into the Parliament, I watched the rehearsal for today taking place, at about 4.30 in the morning.


The gun carriage and the empty hearse



Then the guards of honour in slow march


The SAF band.

Watch the boys do it today in the rain.
Pathetic fallacy as the skies cry along with the nation.
