‘Lest We Forget’

01/11/22

On the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th month we remember our heroes. Those men, women – and animals - who gave their lives in global conflicts to protect others. The first world war officially ended on 11 November 1918. The following year, in 1919 on the same date , King George V held the first Remembrance Day to honour the 8.5 million people on both sides who lost their lives in WW1. Almost 500,000 British horses, mules, camels and bullocks too were killed in the conflict between 1914 and 1918.

Amongst the smartphone in our bag, there are still many of us who make room for notebooks. They can’t tell you the weather, they don’t play games, and they don’t keep an eye on your social media. They can only tell you, what you yourself have written. Therein lies its simplicity.
