T his memorial to Britain's war dead was erected at the end of the first World War. It stands in honor of those who gave their lives for their king and country. The original was used on the first anniversary of the end of the war, and was made of just wood and plaster. The one you see today was created later out of stone, as all proper monuments are. It bears the flags of the army, navy, merchant marine, and air force.

See this monument on Remembrance Day, 11th of the 11th. Covered with Red poppy wreaths in an Autumn mist, with hundreds of silent marchers footsteps echoing along Whitehall....sends tingles up your spine.
