The Battle of Britain Monument

Shot with Olympus E520
On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the eleventh month, the guns of the First World War fell silent. We forget or ignore this day at our peril.

So today, I bring you the most exceptional Battle of Britain monument. It is unusual in the way that it depicts a very real war, and the lives and experiences of the civilians as well as the military. It is a comparatively new (2005) monument and one which repays close examination. I'd urge you to visit and also to read their website, and in particular the page where the sculptor, Paul Day, describes the work.

Other Daily Photo blogs and others also remember this week.
