I’ve had a great week so far after slowly recovering from whatever lergy is going around!
I’ve been preparing for the Creative Itch night at the Thames side theatre in Thurrock (20th November, a night for new work to be performed on stage and to meet fellow creatives!)
I also walked across The O2! It was a great experience!! I would highly recommend it, the view was brilliant, a very exhilarating way to spend my morning! I also went to see the Body World exhibition in Picadilly. WOW! It was so educational and it was so well thought out and very respectful of those who have donated their bodies to the exhibit (Have a google and you’ll know what I mean…)
It will be a reflective end to the week with a trip to see ‘Oh What a Lovely War’ at the Kenneth Moore theatre and of course this weekend I’ll be thinking of those servicemen, women and animals past and present who have lost their lives in conflict since 1914 and before as we commemorate the 100 anniversary of the end of the ‘Great War’
This year I went to France with my dad to look at the battle site of Sain Quentin, where my great-great uncle died on the 27th March 1918 aged 19 a few days after being wounded in Battle. His name is commemorated on the Pozieres Memorial, Somme in France.
There was also another family member of mine Sidney Horace, who died on May 30th 1918 whose name is commemorated on the Soissons Memorial in Aisne. I have yet to learn more about Sidney.
But I think often of what these men experienced and how much WW1 changed the shape of the world in more ways than one.
LEST WE FORGET.
