This yound lady is a credit to her generation when so many of them couldn't even tell you when the Falklands Conflict was (and believe me I''ve had that conversation with some you girls I work with) let alone know about WW1.

A respectful, evocative and classy sculpture as well.

What a wonderful news item! My grandmother was a volunteer who “escorted” post-surgery soldiers and pilots with severe facial injuries around the Sidcup area. This process was used to slowly and comfortably "integrate" the men back into the general local population with as little embarrassment (e.g. staring and pointing) as possible.
