A Century of Remembrance by Laura Clouting

The Cenotaph and Poppies of Remembrance endure to this day as iconic symbols of remembrance. Yet how did it all begin? What did remembrance mean in years gone by – when the memories of the fallen were fresh in minds of friends, family and fellow servicemen, when the ‘language’ of reverence on such a vast scale had yet to be invented?

Here Laura Clouting, graphically and precisely, answers all these questions and more as she tells of the history of that remembrance. From how important it was for the morale of survivors in the trenches to see their comrades buried with respect; to thoughts on the birth of the ‘egalitarian philosophy’ that the fallen had fought side by side, so should be laid to rest likewise (each buried and remembered in equal fashion, regardless of unit or rank).
