First World War Centenary
On the 11th November 2018, we reach the centenary year of World War One.
100 years since the end of conflict.
“On the centenary of the Armistice we will give thanks for peace and for those that returned, and remember the sacrifice of the 800,000 soldiers who died”
Below is a copy of Edgell Rickword, War and Peace – this is the 30th World War One Poem I have published on my home-page in remembrance of our upcoming Centenary celebrations.
This poem also concludes my 30 day challenge. This last month at 11:00 a.m. each morning I have been publishing on my website and Facebook page 30 of my favourite verses from the Great War. Today is Friday 9th November 2018 and in two days time on the 11th November we will take a moment of reflection and remember that 100 years to that day World War One finally ended.
