On a recent holiday to france we visited the Thievepal war memorial & cemetary, in an area of the Somme that was the front line during the Battle of the Somme in the Great War. i think this image really needs a border of some sort, something I havn't quite got around to doing. The second image was taken within the grounds of the memorial. It caught my eye in a quiet corner. I've no idea why the poppy was placed theer, I didn't look to see if there was a name or a writen remembrance on it. The whole area is very thought provoking, with many lives lost in a prolonged battle over a number of months to gain a few hundred yards. the saddest part is the fact that so many graves are un- named, the soldiers bodies being unidentifiable. Very sad.
