A long way from home

By mrswoolybill
An unnamed grave, Sanctuary Wood Cemetery, near Ypres.
Rudyard Kipling chose the wording.
I have a few more uploads from our trip that I'll upload in due course, but there will be a change of direction tomorrow.
Thanks for looking,

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.

Thanks to everyone who has called in here today. I've had a busy day - photographing our local 'In Bloom' prize-giving and working on the battlefields pictures. Only a hundred or so still to go...

Where the light fails to fall, the shadows reign.

The relationship so well portrayed here, Moira.
