Recently whilst sorting my own collection of old WW1 related postcards I was surprised to find how many different photographs / pictures of the Cenotaph in London I have collected over the last couple of years – as the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme is fast approaching on 1st July this year I though I would share some of these images with you:
Sheffield Independent – Wednesday 12th November 1919
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Extract from the Poem: The Fallen
Robert Laurence Binyon (1869-1943), published in The Times newspaper on 21st September 1914.
