I went to find John Nee on the Thiepval memorial, and when we get there he was picked out by a ray of March sunshine. He's right in the middle of the panel section picked out by the sun. A very special moment.

barrynee,

That is a very special moment that you will remember for ever. I had a similar moment at the same place. Christmas Day 2004. Pte J D Bones, Essex Regiment.

Great photies but some I couldn't open, anyone know why? I use my wee digital snapper and am constantly surprised at the outcomes. The shadows of the trees etc. I have two of the cemeteries at Couin, one of which has a man standing in the background, yet I was sure we were on our own there!

These are outstanding photos! I have a few but I fear my camera doesn't stand up to the quality of some of these. Thanks for sharing.

I don't have a very good camera and I'm not much of a photographer, but I like this one. The Waipawa war memorial.

The memorial actually has a clock at the top.

Lovely photos, Stephanie. I enjoyed the non-Western Front ones, too.

Thank you, I found it hard to post my favourite photo as they all mean alot, so I posted my gallery link.

Im returning to the Battlefields in November, so I shall be sure to post some more photos then, too.

My wife and my sister went on one of their power walks yesterday evening :blush: My wife took this picture of The Netley hospital chapel (which was once in the centre of the hospital , before it was demolished ) . Thought it may be appropriate for here . "MO"

Thankyou for all these wonderful photos. I have been talking with my son as we looked at these together, and we decided that yes, you can comprehend the number of war casualties, but when you see row upon row of headstones or crosses, in cemetary after cemetary after cemetary, you cannot fully appreciate the number of men who died, nor the pain carried by those who survived ... very, very thought provoking ...
