Remembrance Sunday

In this centenary year of the start of World War 1, Remembrance Sunday becomes even more poignant.  

The slaughter and the devastation of WW1 was incredible because it was a war fought using nineteenth century methods & twentieth century weapons.  This footage from WW1, including the Battle of the Somme makes me cry.  It's not just about the death of millions of ordinary people - it's about the loss of innocence, the dawn of what was going to be a horrible, brutal century in many ways and the beginning of the modern age.

Lest we forget...
