And we were young

Gone but not forgotten  – the Weekly Photo Challenge.  In this Centenary year, a memorial to the Great War dead of the little Commune of Lugarde, high up in Cezallier, Cantal keeps watch in all weathers.   The names, too many, cut down when they were young.  Gone, they can’t return but we can remember them.


The title is from A E Housman’s Here Dead We Lie:

Here dead we lie
Because we did not choose
To live and shame the land
From which we sprung.

Life, to be sure,
Is nothing much to lose,
But young men think it is,
And we were young.
