Given our commitment for remembering and glorifying ‘Poppy Day‘,
my dedication to the British Commonwealth and my well known
pride in my British citizenship
IT is only right that I mark this anniversary
— though it is a sad one.

A terrible war.

5,525,000 dead on the Allied side, 888,246 British.

Sobering.

This is QUITE THE memorial at the Tower of London. 888,246 ceramic poppies. I would LOVE to buy one of these. I will have to look into that. Click to access UK ‘Metro.co.uk’ coverage with some stunning photographs. Remember. Reflect. You do know that Hitler fought in WW I.


Thank YOU, Canada.

Click to access Wikipedia entry for WW I which explains how the War started on July 28, 1914 but how it was August 4, 1914 when Britain and our PROUD Commonwealth entered the fray. Remember.
