Rememberance

Today being Rememberance Sunday we decided that ‘Remberance’ would be an apt theme for this weeks challenge over at SPA

Rememberance/Armistice day is obviously a time to remember all those who have fallen in the many wars across the years but was originally dedicated as a day of rememberance in 1919, to honour the millions who gave their lives in World War 1. My postcard was made to honour those people amongst them a great, great uncle who lied about his age and joined up at the age of 15 in the early part of  1916…….approximately four months later he was killed at the Battle of the Somme. The man in the photo is another great uncle who gladly survived and went on to live a full life with a wife and three children. (Poppies are a digital stamp drawn by my mum, some normal rubber stamping and pen work finished it off)

“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.”        Laurence Binyon quote from ‘The Fallen’
