In Memory of John Russell Figgis. 1892 – 1939 RIP. — 2 Comments

  1. Gallipoli was indeed a tragedy. I recently discovered and transcribed a travel diary to Greece and Turkey. This included comments after visiting some of the cemeteries on the Gallipoli peninsula almost 50 years ago to the day. It was incredibly moving to see plaques commemorating so many young men – one was only 16 years old. A sad loss of life.

  2. I did a tour of the battlefields and war cemeteries in France and Belgium in 2014 and it upset me very much to realise the extent of the carnage that had occurred there. Such a wicked waste of young lives! I am forever hoping that humans will evolve to become more tolerant and peace-loving.
