Remembrance Day 2020 – Haiku


A sprig of Rosemary and a haiku to honour the fallen soldiers on Remembrance Day, 11 November, originally Armistice Day, when in 1918 World War One ended.


Fields drenched with their blood

The ultimate sacrifice

We remember them


Despite finding himself in many dangerous situations, my father came home safe and sound.  He was just lucky, I guess.

    I am absolutely beside myself!!! WordPress has changed the publishing format, and I don’t know how to use it.

      Hi Svein! Have been too busy looking after my husband. He had further surgery, stayed in hospital 5 weeks and came home on 4 November. I’ll visit your blog ASAP.

  4. Bonjour,
    Je suis la fille d’un des médecins de Cosel, le Dr Rigal. A la suite du décès de notre mère en début d’année, nous avons retrouvé les archives de notre père durant sa captivité, et notamment une lettre de votre père d’août 45. Nous avons été très intéressés et émus de lire les témoignages que vous avez mis sur votre site. Pouvez-vous me communiquer une adresse mail pour échanger avec vous?
    Avec mes remerciements.
