For anyone who wishes to pay a personal tribute, the Royal British Legion have a web site running called everymanremembered.org

where you can either leave a tribute for someone you know of, or they will allocate you the name of someone who has no-one to remember them.....they hope to have every man remembered.

anyone catch last nights Our World War on bbc3. Was excellent programme, obviously to a budget, but still well acted and gave a very very slight glimpse into the first clash between the BEF and German army at Mons.

I missed that one but last night i did watch The Great War The.Peoples.Story, that was pretty good and interesting to
hear some of the untold stories, i thought the bit about the
woman who wanted to be a war correspondent was my favourite
story.

My grandfather was at Passchedaele and survived.
Told me a story about they were going to the frontline in thick snow
and someone had laid out a dead German soldier on the bank with his arm raised
pointing in the direction they were heading. Doesn't seem much but to a young man
heading to what could have been his last days on this mortal coil well!!
