Have there been any commemorations today of the start of Word War One? I have not seen or heard or read of anything in the local press (which has been conspicuous in its lack of coverage.)
This did go into the RG the day after the anniversary.
And updating this on August 6, I still have not see any notices or stories about any commemorative service.
It is not just the dead, it is also the consequences of the war that we must remember. From those consequences we can – or should – learn.
Alas, we do not.
