This is a very special time in our lives. This year it is 100 years since the Armistice – the act that brought about the end of the first world war – the one that was to end all wars. . . . . as it did until the second world war, the korean war, aiden, the conflict over the suez canal, the 6 day israeli war, the falklands, Iraq, Afghanistan etc etc. But certainly in our country we are marking this 100th anniversary with solemn dignity. Honouring those who lost their lives in the pursuit of the politicians’ whim. I have seen some amazing pictorial records already so far – the chap that did the incredible red poppy installation at the Tower of London has done a new ‘weeping window’ of fabric poppies. Many churches, great houses and various institutions are holding events and good photography and cinematography skills will be needed to reflect this without it looking gawdy or mawkish.
