I saw this in the fall and couldn't remember where it was and wanted to go back but couldn't find it! Dumb or what!!

I'm so glad there's a tribute to them somewhere Ham, they didn't have a choice!

Thank you for posting this. It means a great deal to us. Early in my own blogging days, I posted the following, which was prompted by our experience of this unique and important memorial. You might enjoy seeing it. Thank you again. Curtis

A very thoughtful choice for today, Ham. A beautiful monument - too right, they had no choice...

This is the first such memorial in the world. There are now a few scattered around but none are so large, impressive or heartfelt.

Actually, I am sad to say, this is not the first such memorial. Many of the ones around the world were put up before as this article says: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/3626468/They-served-and-suffered-for-us.html

I actually like the fact that it was done by private subscription. It's the way memorials should be organized.

But I love this one. Try to go and wander through and round it whenever I am near even if I do come away with moisture in the eye.

Very appropriate for today┬┤s theme and Spielberg┬┤s War Horse.

A most interesting angle for today's theme and a very thoughtful one too. I guess animal lovers have a strong voice in the UK - I don't think there's any equivalent in France.
