Hi John

Is that a Brit helmet??

Yes. The rim was all but gone. I went back the next day to take more photos, but it had disappeared. I hope whoever rescued it got it home in one piece for it was rather fragile.

I quite like this, from yesterday's commemoration of the 90th anniversary of the unveiling of the 1921 unveiling of the memorial (Sutton thread), when this lad stood stock still at the front for the whole proceedings.

It is the angle that the photo is taken at plus this Caribou has front legs which are similar in position. Anyway who ever heard of a three-legged Caribou?, surely he would fall over!! :D

Both legs are almost in shot here:

A detail from the memorial to the Irish Poet which is situated near Artillery Wood War Cemetery in Flanders where he is buried. Francis Ledwidge was killed on the 31st July 1917, the first day of the battle of 3rd Ypres better known as "Passchendaele".

The Bittern cry

In the wild sky

Where he is lain"

Thank you for your answer Norman. I thought maybe vandals had destroyed the leg
