I am hosting Fun Monday for May 31st and since here in the states we are observing Memorial Day, the assignment is to post a photo of something patriotic or post a photo honoring a veteran.
Most towns and villages in the UK have War Memorials, which were erected in memory of the fallen. They were set up to remember the sacrifices of the Great War (WWI). Then the lists of names were added of those lost in WWII.
In my home-town the memorial is in the grounds of the Castle (ruined keep).
