My own Remembrance Day post

along with some Canadian Memories for you Patrick.

Although I must confess they are

memorialising a New Foundland Regiment.

and not a BC regiment.

As we walked the trenches my thoughts were that there

was not enough cover and I would be wanting to

dig down another foot or so if someone was shooting at me.

If anyone recognises this young lady

and she would like a full copy of the photo I will oblige.

I don’t like posting photos

if have not asked the subject.

Remembrance Day 2018

Before visiting the Western Front Battlefields in June 2017,

I had heard that Flanders poppies grew like weeds

on the Somme battlefields. 

While this photo was taken in a cemetery,

the second image was a typical farm sight.

The photo below however, was not 


And was an unexpected sight… 

On this day,

the eleventh day

of the eleventh month

at the eleventh hour

World War I ended

in 1918. 

Today is Remembrance Day

 

“We will remember them.”

Mostly Canadian ‘threes’ this week. I always think of the Maple Leaf asking

having three distinct sections.

Apologies to all Canadian followers

who may disagree.

This shot taken just prior to…

 three buglers playing

the Last Post at Menin Gate,

Ypres, Belgium.

Three flags at

Beaumont-Hamel War Memorial

on the Somme-Battlefields.

 

This day last year I was still on my way to France.

This caribou appears to have three main antlers

I’m not familiar with caribou and

I am really wondering if it is a caribou.

Google does not have any caribou images

which closely resemble this artistic creation.
