A dog’s life.

Playing…

 

Eating…

…and eating again.

After expending all that energy,

it’s time for a sleep,

before starting all over again.

On

ANZAC DAY

I felt it 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.

During my 2017 visit

to the World War I

Western Front Battlefields,

…I often saw this, but…

 

 

felt that someone was watching

over us as we toured.

ANZAC Day

FOWChallenge-Tribute

~~~~~““

During my 2017 visit to

The Western Front Battlefields

in France and Belgium…

I came across the

Lochnagar Crater Memorial.

 

THe crater was created by detonating 27,000 tons

of explosives under the

German Front Line

Surrounding the crater are tributes and memorials

to many men and women who served…

on the Western Front during

the Great War.


The boardwalk around the crater is created by 4 inch planks. 

At either end of these planks a small tribute

can be placed to commemorate one’s relatives.

   

I placed/paid for this tribute to my Grandfather

who served all along the Western Front

after being part of the gun crew

which fired the First Allied Shot of World War I

from Point Nepean at the mouth of

Port Phillip Bay,

Victoria. 

The time was 1245, August 5th, 1914…   

a mere 2-3 hours after War had been declared in London

at 11 PM the previous night…August 4.

Lest We Forget.

Not the first time I have posted this photo…

however, even though I have created the ‘extras’, in this image,

I’m sure there are spirits of the fallen, lost and missing

standing guard over these cemeteries.

 

This is at the Thiepval Memorial for the missing

on the Somme Battlefields (1914-1918).
