Died on this day in 1916 at the Battle of the Somme. He was the most promising composer of his generation..
Perhaps it is appropriate that I post the pictures of the poppies at St Georges hall today…it is beautiful…particularly at night….
A walk around the city commemorating WW1
He waited until the end of the March …speaking to and taking photos of the veterans….bet that hardly gets reported….
Remember that it was the working class that mainly died in World War One….and Two….
The poppies to commemorate World War One are going to be displayed in Liverpool….I am very excited as I bought one and it’ll be amazing to see!
Mary Beard has been curating on the site this week and it’s well worth looking at…this is Britannia saving the troops….
This is Kit Inspection by Stanley Spencer….
