Ce sentiment face à ces dunes, face à cette mer, face à ces plages sans fin, à la morsure de ce vent... 💚

The remains of the village of Beaumont Hamel on 26th of November 1916, after the Battle of Andre Heights that happened on 10-11 November.

British possession of the Heights would give observation north over the Andre Valley to the German Positions around Beaumont Hamel, Serre and Beaucourt. 🇬🇧

Today marks the 141st and final day of the Battle of the #Somme. (4 photos in the post )
#Somme100 #141days

Battle of the Somme ended 100 year ago today... (Poem)
It was 1916 on the first of July,
The smoke from the guns darkened the sky,
Shots rang out and men fell dead,
The sky was grey but the ground was all red,
To fight the Germans the British and French had come,
To the bloodiest fight of the War, The Battle of the Somme.

While artillery rained down on the German side,
The allies swallowed their fear and stood with pride,
Waiting for the whistle to go over the top,
To run without question, don’t look back and don’t stop,
But this is when the suicide started,
Guns screamed out as bodies and limbs became parted.

Over fifty thousand casualties in one single day,
A very sad loss the top general's would say,
We will rest for now and continue tomorrow,
No time for the men to indulge in their sorrow,
The next men stood ready, ready for the slaughter,
Would they fare better when faced with the mortars.

The answer to this question was obviously no,
As the casualty count continued to grow,
For every single bit of ground that was taken,
The lives of many men were sadly forsaken,
And so the battle waged on and on,
The bloodiest battle of World War One.

It was 1916 on the 18th of November,
That the five month long battle was finally over,
No more shots rang out but millions were dead,
The sky was still grey, the ground still stained red,
Not a sound to be heard, no more whistles to come,
It was the end of the battle, the worst in history, the Somme.

Description
• Memorial for all the British and South African missing soldiers during World War I.
• Names carved on the panels indicate soldiers who died between 1915-1918 but whose bodies were never found.
• Hence, they have no known grave.
• There is a visitor centre that explains the history of the Battles of the Somme in which South African troops fought.

Commemorating the 41 @leytonorientfc players and staff who all signed upto The Middlesex Regiment for WW1, with a special retro chevron kit as worn at the time.
A 3-1 was a fitting tribute.

100 years ago ww1 ended; 'Remembrance box Somme ww1'. I made this box, inspired by the boxes of Joseph Cornell, after my holiday in the Albert (Somme) area in France. In almost every field you find remnants of the cruelty the armies were exposed to. This box is filled with a picture of the Beaumont Hamel trenches and shrapnel pieces I gathered from various battlefield areas. I added the cross with the poppy as a memento to all those fallen. Lest we forget....
