Makes me wonder if the tree understands the fuss at its base, Chris.
Chris: An interesting point Ray

I know today is a special Day of Remembrance in the UK - and your image is a wonderful tribute - so modest and so dignified. I remember, too. We remember one week later in our country - why not on the same day as other countries?
Chris: We aught all to do this at the same time Philine. 11.00 on 11 November is of course the time the 1918 armistice was signed. If only as a result of this, Germany wasn't punished, quite unfairly as she was, then the calamity of the 1940s would never have happened..
and a very shot of it, Chris.
Chris: Thank you Ayush
It was interesting that the German football team wore a poppy on their shirts for last night's game against England
Chris: When only last year the powers-that-be decreed poppies were political statements..

Sanity restored
Chris: Yes indeed Martin
Its simplicity maybe carries a stronger, more personal message, Chris
Chris: Thank you Frank
It would be interesting to know the story behind this tree being used as a memorial.
Chris: Yes it would Brian, maybe the village has no formal one?
I truly feel this small private memorial as much as any large cenotaph in the city.
Chris: Yes indeed Mary

Simple but very poignant.
Chris: Thank you Alan
It's fields just like this where all the havoc was wrought.
Chris: Yes indeed Tom, just glad it was all before my lifetime..
Simple and subtle.
Chris: Thank you Elizabeth
