The First World War Battlefields of France and Belgium – A Short Video of Remembrance

The First World War Battlefields of France and Belgium

A Short Video of Remembrance

I’ve just come across this video I cobbled together a number of years ago of some pictures I took around the Somme Battlefields in France, and Ypres in Belgium. With Armistice Day approaching I thought it would br worth including in Easymalc’s Wanderings. Picture No 2 is deliberately blurred by the way, in case you were wondering.

    Brilliant, Malc, no other word for it

    I was up in Westminster on Sunday for the Act of Remembrance as I always do and yet again it moved me greatly.

    I still play that Eric Bogle song regularly in my set, most lately in Northumbria last week and I never tire of it.

    No, it is not an easy subject, especially for those that served but it is most definitely worth remembering “lest we forget”.

      A very poignant day for all of us, but will resonate even more for someone like you I’m sure Fergy.

      As a matter of interest I saw the Fureys perform this song live – Very moving as you can imagine

    A great and fitting tribute to the fallen, Malc, and very moving. I’ll show this to Maddie as she’s taking part in Buckingham’s Remembrance Day parade on Sunday. Well done.

      Another difficult one to look at – but we do need to remember what our ancestors went through so that we can make sure it doesn’t all happen again.

          Thanks again for your support Alli. You’ll be pleased to know that I’m in the throws of posting something a bit lighter today.

      I just isolated some of the subjects into colour. Thanks again for looking at another difficult subject. I’ll lighten up for the next one

        Don’t worry Malc, being a avid study of military History and coming from a sort of Military family, it’s a post I fully approve of. Lest we Forget.. (the sad thing is we seem to all the time).
