The SOMME 1916
100 years to the day…The Bloodiest of Battles started and would continue its slaughter through till November. I guess we can no longer comprehend the losses, over a million lives gone for ever and others who’s would never be able to enjoy life as they should.
The add to the tragedy, the Somme was a part of a War that would continue till 1918.
But we can remember…..yet still conflicts continue across the world, conflicts which are just as brutal and final for those involved.
