Lest We Forget


This is a shot I took in April at the a Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery, Poperinge, Belgium.
Remembrance Day is not for the glorification of war or other patriotic stirrings but a time to remember all men and women who gave up their lives in all wars.

  2. Well said. It's also a reminder to not repeat the mistakes of the past - I hope our politicians reflect on that today!
