Today, 11th.November, is Armistice Day proper and I am featuring a picture taken at the Maddingly American War Cemetary near Cambridge that I also featured on 9th.October, http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Maddingly_Memorial_/ .
There are rows and rows of these crosses, lots without a name, just an inscription to an unknown warrior. Relatives of those buried here are able to arrange for flowers to be laid against the loved ones final resting place.
I hope you feel this is fitting tribute on this celebration of the day the world stepped back from the abyss 90 years ago.
Starting tomorrow, and until Sunday, yes I am posting at the weekend, will be a set of photos all taken about 50 years ago which hopefully will stir the hearts of some of the older members of SC, and others as well of course.
