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!

100 years, yet still so important to remember. It seems so recent. Nice to see photos from you, Lauren.

So nice to see you back on line, Lauren; and this is an especially fine post. Without taking anything away from the sacrifices made by US military personnel, I think parts of Europe and specifically, England, can speak to the immediate horrors of war with more authority than other folks further away from the line of fire. I was fortunate to serve during a lull in the hostilities.

Thank you for your poignant post on this very special anniversary. Here in Australia, small towns and cities observed the occasion with services and wreath laying ceremonies.
Lovely photos of bright reds amongst Autumn colours and dappled sunshine.
Handmade flowers are impressive.
Warm wishes from Melbourne to Coventry
