Scattered around our respective countries are numerous monuments, statues and memorials to the fallen. From small villages to large towns, they are there. Some remember the names of local fallen heroes and others, cast in bronze or sculpted in stone, portray individuals. From the American civil war, Crimean war, Boer war, WW1, WW2 and later.
One Hundred years this weekend since the end of WW1 (perhaps we will learn one day).
I will start this with a picture I took some time ago at Spean Bridge near Fort William in Scotland.
It is the Commando Memorial, cast in bronze by Scott Sutherland and unveiled by the Queen Mother in 1952.
