Honouring the Somme

Silence at 7.28 a.m. to remember the casualties of the Somme.  Especially those of the 38th Welsh Division at Mametz Wood where my 26 year old grandfather served as a doctor on the front line.

My poppy lines the route with the following dedication:

Through the Slime

Across the Wire

They Struggle and Fall

And Give their All

Terrors in Mind
