My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Lines

~~~~~

With yesterday’s ANZAC Day commemorations

still fresh in our memories I have continued

the ANZAC theme today with a brief visit to

Tyne Cot Military Cemetery

in Belgium.

Some 34,000 names of soldiers who perished

and have never been found, line to wall of

Tyne Cot Cemetery.   

These 34,000 are names which could not

fit on Menin Gate

 

The steps also make good lines this week.

Apart from names on the wall there are also…

the graves of 11,900…

 

of British Empire, as it was then known, 

service personnel who perished

during the Great War.

 Finally, considering this post

is being published on

Saint Patrick’s Day…

I thought some clover may be in order,

even if it’s not the four-leaf variety.

Now I just hope he brings the moisture

with him during the next few days.
