1914 – 2014

WW1 centenary London 2014

 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

 

Picture: A view from West Hampstead, London. A solitary beam of light (“Spectra”, by Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda) pierces the London sky as lights are switched off across the nation in remembrance of the outbreak of the First World War on 4th August, 1914.
