    Remembrance Sunday



    “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

    We will remember them.”

    The installation at the Tower of London is called "Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red" , photos don't do it justice , each day thousands of people come to see it (I've been there 4 times as it is just across from my work).

    By Remembrance Day there will be 888,246 ceramic poppies , representing the British fatalities during World War 1.

    This info graphic is sad statement on how little has been learned from the 'Great War' - so many wars and conflicts since WWI & II - some I'd never even heard of -

    Graph of world wars by number of dead and duration of conflict shows how war is very much not behind us - UK - News - The Independent
