100 Years Ago...Remembered

Remembrance Sunday
Brinklow Village, Warwickshire

St John the Baptist Church -
Look closely and you will see 
glass silhouettes of two soldiers sitting on the bench above.

Cascade of hand-crafted poppies.
Today marks the 100 year anniversary of the end of hostilities
in the First World War at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

There are many displays throughout the Village.  A wonderful effort by all.
Below is a display focusing on WWI Tank Corp.

Remembrance Sunday is held in the United Kingdom 
and the Commonwealth of Nations as a day 
"to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth 
military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts'.


Greetings.  It has been a long time.  I have been
busy but still taking photographs here and there.  
Brinklow Village is located a short distance from Coventry, about
10 minutes from my home.  When I saw all the
hard work that had been undertaken (and believe me
there is so much more than what I show here), I 
decided I must share.

Warmest Best Wishes to you All!
