Bloodiest known battle
in all of human history.
794,238 Allied troops from the
U.K., Australia, Bermuda, Canada, India, Newfoundland,
New Zealand, South Africa, Southern Rhodesia & France
lost their life in this battle
that lasted from July 1 to November 18, 1916.
[The U.S. did NOT participate in WW I until April 6, 1917.]
This #WeAreHere reenactment by 1,500 uniformed volunteers
was to remind people of all those that were lost.
It appears that each volunteer carried business cards
showing the name one that died in the battle.
Very neat. Very British. Very touching.
