Lest we forget

The Unknown Soldier

The Known and the Loved

Lest We Forget


  1. Yes, indeed, lest we forget. I've just finished reading the on-line UK papers where they show the various acts of remembrance up and down the nation during a moment of silence. Very touching indeed.

  2. Chronica Domus, thank you. Undoubtedly you have seen the Blood Swept Land and Seas of Red at the Tower of London installation online – to me the most moving of them all. A pity it is not being kept in place.

    1. Yes, I've been watching the installation grow over the summer and it truly was a remarkable gesture of remembrance.

      I also read that the poppies may crack during frosty temperatures, hence their removal.

    2. I didn't know about the cracking in low temperatures. Also, it occurs to me, if the poppies were left in place its power would diminish.

      Again, thank you.
