This WWI Aquascutum coat is 1 of 100 menswear items recently collected @museumoflondon. The coat was kept in the family and subsequently worn by the soldier's son, a Londoner, Francis Golding (1944-2013). This coat and a selection of other collected items, came off display today from Show Space, the Museum of London's 'quick-rotation' display area that changes every 1-2 months. This display area has been a great success for the museum as it allows us to respond to current topics, show off certain treasures that don't normally get put on display, or, in this instance, display a selection of newly-acquired artefacts. The mastermind behind Show Space is @beabehlen If you'd like more information, look here: https://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/discover/francis-golding-life-clothes# Many thanks to @cyanimator @charlottelolita @laurenisles @vasiliki__k @melina.plottu and Natasha Fenner for everything you've done, from cataloguing, label writing, mount making, object selection, exhibition development and installation #fashion #menswear #mensfashion #mensstyle #menssuits @aquascutum #fashionhistory #fashion #wwi #thegreatwar #worldwari #worldwar1 #trenchcoat #trench #trenchcoats #trenchwarfare #acquisition #war

"Then for the first time we became aware that our language lacks words to express this offense, the demolition of a man. In a moment, with almost prophetic intuition, the reality was revealed to us: we had reached the bottom. It is not possible to sink lower than this; no human condition is more miserable than this, nor could it conceivably be so.....If we speak, they will not listen, and if they listen, they will not understand." - Primo Levi, Auschwitz survivor. | 📷: British dead at Albert, France, killed in March 1918 while covering the retreat of the British 5th Army in the face of the German spring offensive.

French President François Mitterrand and West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl are shown holding hands during a memorial service commemorating the Battle of Verdun from the first Great War. Douaumont Cemetery, Verdun, France. September 25th 1984. The Battle of Verdun is considered by many historians to be the most blood-stained battlefield in all of human history, as there has never been such a lengthy battle involving so many troops on such a small area. There were 800,000 casualties on a battlefield not even 10 square kilometers... This picture, seventy years after the start of World War I, shows the leaders of modern France and Germany standing in peace and friendship long after their guns fell silent, and it was also seen as a sign that the longstanding enmity between the Germans and the French was finally over. The picture is even more powerful when you consider that President Mitterrand was injured and captured by German troops in 1940 during World War II, ironically while he was stationed in Verdun. Also, Chancellor Kohl's father had fought in World War I in the hills around Verdun, so this visit was a bit personal for the two leaders. With a duration of 303 days of non-stop combat, the Battle of Verdun remains as the longest known continuous battle in human history.

The governments of the world should do so much more to stop the wars on our planet, do you agree?

The monument on the mountain Gučevo in Serbia, represents mausoleum where the remains were laid by both warring sides. The construction of the ossuary was originally started in 1917 by Austrians. 12 years later was completed by the Serbian architect GV Todić. Burnt from projectile cannon,  top of Gučevo showed for long time  how the battle on Gučevo was terryfing , as told by people of  Podrinje. Defending Emin water and geo-point 708 for 55 days, our brave soldiers gave their lives.  American journalist John Reed visited this area a few months after the battle, and noted the following: "... Looking better, we saw a terrible thing: a bunch of these little protruded pieces of uniform, skulls with matted hair, bloody bones sticking out of army boots. We walked around the dead. So many of them were, sometimes our legs fell in the pit of rotting flesh, crushing bones. Through full length of 9km on Gučevo ,  corps were so stacked in piles, 10,000 of them.

The #Serb #resistance to NATO #aggression was the resistance against #NWO #imperialism.
Resistance to the NATO Aggression against Serbia – one of the Battles in the Global War – At the beginning of the NATO aggression in 1999 the #Cuban #leader #Fidel #Castro expressed belief that Serbian guerrilla skills, acquired and developed throughout history, will provide dignified resistance to air strikes and a potential ground invasion of the biggest military alliance in the world, behind which stood nineteen world’s most powerful country. On the other side, NATO General Wesley Clark, chief strategist of the attack on #Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro), assured the international public that the #Serbs will be defeated in not more than three days. It turned out that Fidel Castro knew much more than #General #Clark what all sorts of deeds people are capable of when they are fighting for their freedom.

You'd think the wealthy were better off in the First World War but actually you'd be very wrong. More private schoolboys were killed from 1914-1918, Eton lost 20% of its pupils because one of the most deadly roles in the trenches was a Junior Officer, something Eton provided was officer material boys. There was a 5% greater chance of being killed as a Junior Officer than that of an infantryman. The life expectancy of an average soldier would be a casualty on the Somme in 1916 after 3 months on the front lines. For Junior Officers, this was just six weeks; the average age being about 23. #WW1 #WorldWar1 #History #19141918
