A very stirring monument.
That is as it should be remembered. I always wondered why they stopped selling poppies here in the USA for Armistice Day. In fact I have wondered why they changed it to Veterans'Day. It is right to memorialize the end of a horrible war.

It's our local monument. I've always thought it was particularly striking.

We mainly call it Remembrance Day- which covers all the bases. It belongs to the veterans, but also to the families of those who didn't come home- and to the dead themselves.

Of course the American experience of WWI is rather different from that of the European nations. You came in right at the end and scored a series of victories. For you it was a good "war"- and not particularly costly. Your "bad" wars are the Civil War and Vietnam.

I like the lighting in this photograph. Moody, cold!

It was taken a few years ago, but it could have been taken today.
