Armistice Day is on 11 November and is also known as Remembrance Day. Celebrated by the UK and all Allied Countries,it marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. A two-minute silence is held at 11am to remember the people who have died in wars.
Once upon a time even all the traffic would stop in the streets and men would stand outside their cars and remove their hats in respect.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row....

Thank you, I ask Finley what he wanted to do for his home " Finley said he had to build a monument for Remembrance Day first and second and for all the soldiers fallen , I said to him draw what you want to do, so he drew something like above, so he sorted the bits out, so I help build it,

It came up so well, and reminds me of the makeshift graves markers I've seen erected by the fallen's mates with only what they had available.
Painting it the colour of trench mud was also a wonderfully evocative idea.

So many young lives gone. So many did not get to "come home". I think your tribute captures all of that emotion.

Finley my grandson is doing a topic on the First World War at school, he at the moment is trying to do poppy wreath for the monument, I'll let do so much then help him,

It is sad for the fallen ones so young, today teenagers haven't a clue,

It's great that you have a grandson who is interested and obviously getting an education that includes such a vital historical period. WWI ended 101 years ago but it's a far too important event to just now be forgotten.

As you say, teenagers are now so self-obsessed and surgically attached to their damn "devices" that even a clue would be a sign of an original thought for most of them. The very concept of going off to fight for their country just wouldn't ever cross their Instagram fed minds.
