Stoppage Drill Posted 7 November , 2013 Share Posted 7 November , 2013 The events which started Martin on his path to conversion and sainthood occurred in Amiens. Amongst several patronages, he is that of soldiers. The church/cathedral/church of Ypres is named for him. St Martin's Day is 11th November. Each fact in isolation is unremarkable, but taken together the Great War coincidence quotient is noteworthy, to say the least. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
