In Remembrance

By TrevBatWCC    
Descending the steps back to street level from the raised side area of the Menin Gate shown in the lead image of my previous upload Menin Gate Memorial , I spotted this solitary poppy on a small wooden cross wedged between the engraved stone panels. Heading further down, there was a row of poppies lined up on a ledge in front of more of the engraved panels (V1), and focussed just on the one poppy slightly left of centre.
My last upload for a few days, as I知 heading off to Weymouth tomorrow! Smile
Many thanks to Colleen and Kate (Irishkate) for their User Awards on that previous upload, most appreciated Smile

A hundred years on, families are still feeling loss and pain. I have often seen the small personal tributes, tucked away in nooks and crannies of the big public statement monuments. This is so simple and so moving.
I'll come back later for the versions.
