Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Metal-Autumn


My contribution for this week’s




Autumn is long gone…

tree_0170and scenes like these…

tree_1783have been replaced by scenes like this, which in turn…

acaica_0710have been replaced by our ever green spring-flowering trees.


And this is the metal which is in my mind this week.

On such a beautiful day it was difficult to contemplate that

both these pieces of metal fired the first shots in both

World Wars and began years of carnage, heartache and loss of life.

My Grand Father was a member of the gun crew which fired

the First Shot of World War 1; the right hand gun.

Later this year it is to be returned to its original emplacement.

Cubs_0624however, we will never tire of them, well not for a while.
Cubs_N1472They endeared themselves to everyone…
cubs_0719who saw them that night in October, 2013.

We loved them so much that we decided they would be our

‘souvenir’ and we asked

Warren Carey, a South African artist

to create a pencil drawing of them.

Soon they will adorn our wall.
