Old comrades

Photograph of a Canadian military funeral at a cemetery at Poperinghe (Poperinge), Belgium, 11 August 1917. Note the fallen soldier's coffin is draped with the union flag.

From the Collection of the Imperial War Museum (IWM Q5875).

Standing on the fields of Ypres inspired my ghost story  "From Elgar to Vaughan Williams    In the days of mass bombings and stealth planes killing without being seen, to stand in the trenches and to see the person you kill was so emotional for me, even as a distant viewer.
