Armistice Day

artillery-memorial

The Artillery Memorial was unveiled in 1925 to commemorate almost fifty thousand men of the Royal Artillery Regiment who died in World War One. This photograph from an old postcard would have been taken soon afterwards.

50,000 men from just one branch of the British army. Remember.
