The Somme 100 Years On

As you will surely know it's 100 years since the Battle of the Somme began.
Lutyens monument - Inscribed with names of 72,246 men with no known grave

Let's take a moment to pause and remember those of all nations who fell on that day... and the many days that followed.

If you have the opportunity then I highly recommend a visit to this extraordinary and moving memorial. There is also a visitors centre that is worth seeing.

If you'd like a little more information then the BBC have a couple of interesting videos here and here.

Lest we forget.
