Grove Park War Memorial

Something to really look at rather than just glance at.  Every single name on this, and every other memorial to every war in every country of the world, is or was a real person.  Someone will have photos of them at home; labels underneath the photos saying 'Dad' or 'Son' or 'Uncle' or 'Daughter'.
Not just names cast in bronze.  Far too many names cast in bronze.
I looked for names from my own regiment and found a few, I also saw names from so many other countries that had supported us.  I will try to make some kind of montage to show a few.

War memorials do that to you don't they? Get you in a reflective mood. I suppose that's part of their raison d'être. Nice b&w shot.
