Remembrance Sunday

Dulce et decorum est’
By Wilfred Owen
A thought both for the day and the war now

‘I survived the trenches — and would never go back’
Jack Davis, interviewed at 107, remembers being a British soldier in WWI

Taki on the desirability of a Central Powers victory
Wilson's war destroyed Catholic Europe East and West and Palestine would have been better off remaining a distant province of Turkey

LRC pick
Farce and tragedy

In addition to the Cenotaph in London many English towns have a prominent monument (you can see one in the background in the first scene of Bridget Jones' Diary for example) - the war wiped out a generation.

Dona eis requiem.
