One Hundred Years Ago Today

I know it is frown upon to post two blogs in one day, but I would be remiss if I let this day pass unnoticed.

One hundred years ago today, 23 August 1914 soldiers of the BEF engaged German forces at Mons, Belgium. It was the first major clash of arms between British and German troops in what would come to be known as the Great War.

Much can be said of the how and why that war was fought. What we can never forget is the sacrifice the young men of both sides made fighting for what they believed in, for many gave all they had, and ever would have. That should never be forgotten.
