Remembrance Day - November 11th, 2007


"The enemy's fire was effective from the onset but the heaviest casualties occurred on passing through the gaps in our front wire where the men were mown down in heaps. In spite of losses, the survivors steadily advanced until close to the enemies wire by which time few remained."
- Diary of the 1st Newfoundland Regiment, July 1st, 1916

Went through all of your photos today, and they are so thought -provoking. Lived in NF for 5 months, and all of your photos of Gander, Twillingate, Change Islands brought me right back there. Lovely, lovely...

Missing your pictures, I have you as a link on my blog. I wish you a Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing more of your beautiful pictures soon.

Such a poignant inscription. I'm glad that flowers bloom beside the stone in memory of the young man.
