100th Anniversary of the Battle of the Somme

Tomorrow is the 100th Anniversary of the start of First World War Battle of the Somme.

Let us remember the 55000 casualties on the first day of which 20000 were dead.

Whole villages in the UK had their men folk wiped out.

The Battle lasted +/- 140 days and cost 1.3 million casualties on both sides.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them – RIP brave soldiers
