Word-of-Day-Challenge-Castoff

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

If you cast off something,
you get rid of it because it is
no longer necessary or useful to you,
or because it is harmful to you.

~~~~~

I often wonder if fashions which are sold

in markets are last seasons cast offs.

Perhaps not a bona fide

Farmers Market however…

…these Arras (France) market images…

…are nearly the only market images…

…I possess.

Any other images…

…are of markets

…where locals are trying…

…to capture the tourist dollar.

The Arras Market was operating…

…primarily for locals…

..to purchase the necessities of life.

The Upper part of a shoe is tht part which surrounds the sides and ttop of one’s foot

At the Battle of Bullecourt allied armies

had to attack the German army which

was situated on the higher (upper) ground.

There was little or no way for allied soldiers to

gain any protection from German bullets

on these open fields.

On

ANZAC DAY

It is appropriate to feature

Flanders Field poppies.

It wasn’t until my visit to the Western Front in 2017

that I realised how prolific these poppies are.

Like wildflowers turning fields of battle, red.

Found on

the Somme Battlefields

of France.

When this elephant wandered past us our guide said,

There goes the whole of Africa.

Knowing our guide he would have

had a twinkle in his eye, as we did,

not knowing whether he had

said Hole or Whole

*****

However there was no discussion about spelling

we when arrived at Lochnagar Crater, some

21 Km from Villers Bretonneux.

A hole in the ground it was.

Created by detonating 27 tons of explosive

under the German army’s frontline.

The explosion created a crater

330 feet (100.5 metres) across

and 70 ft (21 metres) deep.

For comparison a Jumbo jet

measures 63 metres in length

with a wing span of 60 metres

and a height of 19.4 metres (63 ft 6 in)

meaning it would easily fit in the crater.
