A very moving memorial.

So glad I stopped the car to take a closer look.
Definitely worth remembering. ANZAC Day is coming up in April.
I arrived in Sydney on the eve of Anzac Day 14yrs ago, and so the following morning I found myself caught up in it all. Never forgotten.
What a special experience that must have been.
What a wonderful memorial. Great photo of it too.
Here is my entry for today.
Thank you Cee x
I appreciate your comment to Gypsy. We really need to keep remembering the past.
Right now we are having too many horrors every day over here.
Beautifully captured image.
Thanks Carol for such lovely feedback. I agree we must keep remembering x
Memorials are so difficult to encounter.
They are, and after a two days of going round cemeteries and attending events if was overwhelming. But in a way that was good, as we need to remember the horror.
Definitely, I’ll never forget Anzac Cove.
oh that must have been haunting.
Yes, I just cried and cried. Where were you, a WW1 battlefield?
Yes….. visiting the grave of my Mum’s Uncle. Very moving as we were there at the time of the 100th anniversary of the 3rd Battle of Ypres. I needed so much time alone just to cope x
That’s a very bleak statue. Too many wars.
Far far too many wars . . . . and Belgium has been caught up in the middle of most 😦
I spy another circle in the background too – the tower!
Well spotted, and apologies I’ve taken so long to reply. Only just realised there was a treasure trove in spam.
That’s an interesting one Becky. Subtle circle and squares, and a sad but sensitive war memorial
It is a photo I’ve been pondering what to do with ever since I took it, as I felt it deserved a page of its own. I found it such a moving memorial, and as you say very sad. There is just something about the red writing surrounding him.

Strange how the sculpture distorts things. The shot doesn’t look square at all, though I’m sure it is. Can’t blame the wine this morning. 🙂 🙂 Have a happy day, Becky!
I agree does not look quite square and it is not the first one. But promise you it is 🙂
Bleak here this morning. Off out into the snow xx
Have fun, make a snowman for me!!
We had an absolute downpour earlier, but now blue skies. Not sure how long it is going to last though, settled blue and sun isn’t due until Wednesday.
It’s not due here… full stop 🙂 Poor swans and cygnets on the river!
Phew, glad you are having a break from it all. I am just thankful we are not at home, they have had quite a bit in Winchester.
A very thoughtful square – and a war memorials that for once is not martial, and mentioning honour and blood and sacrifice.
So glad you like it . . . we found it very moving after a day at all the war graves.
Lovely to look at your Belgium photos again. Many memories
