WWI Memorial, Cimetiére des Carmes, France

02 November 2014

Fresh flowers for the Day of the Dead (1st November)...
The setting sun casting its golden light on the relief of solders, carrying a fallen man...
The memorial reads, "For our glorious dead 1914 - 1918"

 


More photos behind the cut....



 







 The inner walls of this enormous monument have the names of the local soldiers who died in the war... the hundreds of names, carved and listed in stone is so overwhelming, I couldn't bring myself to photograph them.
