Archie’s Day — 1 Comment

  1. There’re a number of my family on that gate, and another bunch up on the curtain wall at Tyne Cot.
    It was one of the things that struck me growing up, for I’m of an age that met a goodly number of those that fought in that war at the end of their lives, that so very few ever went back. And this was true for those I met in England within the cities too.
    But it has long been a thing for the Americans to visit the the cemeteries. And I’m not quite sure why. Was it that the hell of the 20s on these islands when the central banks began pulling liquidity removed the possibility of travel except for those like arrived to/for the dedication of the Celtic Cross to the Munsters in the church grounds at Ypres.
    I just wonder.
