Borrowed

In the light of events and commemorations June 6th onwards...

This image belongs to a friend, I'm borrowing it and have given it a small dose of Photoshop. Thanks Chris x

War memorial Rishton, Lancs.

Which of course leads me to remember poetry studied years ago for GCE.

Wilfred Owen

My friend, you would not tell with such high zest 
To children ardent for some desperate glory, 
The old Lie: 
Dulce et decorum est Pro patria mori.
