#theirnamelivethforevermore

MOST RECENT

One hundred years ago today on 17.04.18 my relative Robert was killed aged 19 on the western front. Today my mum and I followed in his footsteps in the Ypres salient, over the ground and trenches we think he fought and died in, and found his name on the walls of the missing at Tyne Cot. Amazing to finally see the places I have read so much about. Fascinating and incredible day.

Visited the Australian War Memorial today and barely got through the First World War section of its impressive museum before closing time, when we headed back outside for the impressive Last Post ceremony, held every evening.

Met a few wonderful people today, all members of 48th Highlanders of Holland Pipes and Drums. This bagpipe band has such a rich history, loved to hear all of their stories❤! #48thhighlanders

Hike to Monte Cassino was blocked by barbed wire so I only got to see the World War 2 Cemetery (Italy was heavily bombed and many of its cities destroyed) but still a satisfying trip #singletonineurope #cassinowarcemetery #montecassino #lifeinitaly #rememberthefallen #theirnamelivethforevermore

Oysaki muhtelif takvim günlerinde tamamen duygusalız hepimiz... O kadar insan 1915’te bunlar har vurup harman savursun, çalsın çırpsın diye mi yaşamlarını feda ettiler?
2. Dünya savaşına girmeyip barışın kıymetini , yeşile doğup heryere beton dökme merakımızla doğanın da kıymetini bilmediğimize göre 3. Dünya savaşından hallice ortadoğu kan batağında debelenip sahte anmalara devam edebiliriz.
Nasıl olsa oy uğruna bir sürü bukalemun politikacının ardından koşmaya meraklı vatandaşlarımızla tembelliğe ve usulünce gaspa, hazıra kondumculuğa alışkınız...
Farklı renkler, etnik kimlik dinler ve diller yerine tek adamcılıkla nereye kadar...
Ohale devam, çakma pusulalarla planlar tastamam...
Elde var hüzün...

Make room, you people, for our tread,
We are the last of The Gods,
We do not carry treasure´s load,
We carry one that is dead.

Shield to shield and spear to spear,
We travel to Northland´s ground,
Until we have in the far grey sea
The island Thule found.

It´s said to be the island of troth
where still valid are honor and oath,
There we sink the king into the earth
In a coffin of spears from ash.

We come, make room for our tread
Through Rome´s betraying gate.
We only carry our king,
the crown was lost by fate. --------------------------------------------In honor of my friends Kees Grooss and Willem Wuijsman #oldsoldiersneverdie #theirnamelivethforevermore
