I have searched the internet for the poem "Squire nagged and bullied me......" I read this poem last year when I visited one of the many cemetries on the Somme. It was left in the registry book by a descedant of an English private. Reading Sassoon's poem in that setting was probably one of the most poignant moments of my visit to the Somme.

30, 782 days since Nov. 11, 1918 on the day I visited your site. Not so very many days...

My grandfather was an American soldier gassed in France in WW1. His mother was a Mi'kmaq Indian from Nova Scotia. He survived the war, but his pre-war career as a professional boxer was ended by the injury to his lungs.

I chanced on the tomb of the British Unknown Soldier in the Abbey in 1972 while on a brief leave from my U.S. Army post in Germany. I came near to fainting when I read the inscription. It was too overwhelming, perhaps because I was only a year back from Vietnam.

I visited again on Remembrance Day, 1997. Outside the Abbey there were hundreds of rows of little wooden crosses on which one could write something.

I wrote, " I claim them all and they all claim me."

Today so much is taken for granted and I for one have a great deal of respect and will always feel sad for those who suffered and gave their lives. We shall never truly know just what those people went through during what must have been a terrifying experiance. I feel that this war was in many ways a frightning lesson into many things that were new and not known, at a great cost to those who served.
This is a very good informative site. It has been done well and I congratulate you for it.

I have rarely been moved so quickly by by a web-site. Its poignancy and honesty ensure we remember those people we never knew who nevertheless gave their lives in a cause it is hard to understand now.Congratulations to all.

Thank you so much for offering this music to be used as a reminder of the futility of most wars. I first heard the song by Tommy Makem during a concert at my friend Danny O'Flaherty's Irish Channel Pub in New Orleans two years ago. Danny then sang it this past St. Patrick's weekend. I make my annual visit to O'Flaherty's from Michigan and have visited 13 times...the highlight being the nightly visit to the Pub and hearing wonderful music and requesting Mr. Bogle's ballads with each visit. Being an artist, I certainly enjoy such meaningful creativity.
Happy Holidays to you and your family.
