Some great food eaten, some good laughs and all rounded off with the inevitable eight new @commonwealthwargraves cemeteries and new #ShotAtDawn and #CityOfLondonRifles graves visited and catalogued. I love these weekends! @amiensmetropoleofficiel

The @shotatdawnproject was formed because a member of our community wanted to make a facility that would combat all the issues that veterans face after being discharged.⠀ ⠀ Learn more about the project, as well as its founder Conrad Jeffries, here: https://buff.ly/2pcTOvk⠀ ⠀ #verteransday2019 #shotatdawn

At 11am today on #RemembranceSunday I proudly spent my two minutes silence and laid a cross on behalf of #CityofLondon #Rifles #lodge 5606 in front of the grave of Rifleman R. Barker. He was the only 6th battalion #CityOfLondon Rifleman to be #ShotAtDawn for cowardice. It is a remembrance Sunday that will stay in my mind for a long time in the great company of @alanlaishley & @tiger_lund

Private Herbert Morris came from Jamaica and joined the 6th Battalion British West Indies Regiment when he was under age. He told a doctor ‘I am troubled with my head. I cannot stand the sound of the guns’ and went AWOL several times. He faced a court martial, and despite good character reports, was found guilty and #ShotAtDawn. He was 17. #PoppyDay #BoySoldiers #WeWillRemberThem #ArmisticeDay

On Remembrance Sunday we remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. The National Memerial Arboretum is such an emotive and poignant place that perfectly honours the war dead. . . "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them." . . . #remembrancesunday #neverforget #wewillrememberthem #lestweforget #memorials #thearmedforcesmemorial #shotatdawn #shotatdawnmemorial #remembranceday #royalbritishlegion #poppies #poppyappeal #nationalmemorialarboretum #armisticeday #britishphotography #photosofbritain #britishhistory #historyphotography #amateurphotography #amateurphotographer #autumnphotography

Remember those who wanted to make a difference in the world, those sent to war without a choice, those who lived with the horror of what they had experienced, those who could bear it no more and were executed, those who were left behind. A minute of reflection of just how bloody lucky we are to have freedom of choice. #wewillrememberthem #shotatdawn #armistice #PoppyAppeal #helpforheroes #royalbritishlegion #warhorse #ww1 #palsregiments #minutesilence

#whitepoppies In memory of young people #shotatdawn after researching the first world war, I learnt some very sad stories.

"Shot at dawn" The memorial portrays a young British soldier blindfolded and tied to a stake, ready to be shot by a firing squad. The memorial was modelled on the likeness of 17-year-old Private Herbert Burden, who lied about his age to enlist in the armed forces and was later shot for desertion. The memorial is surrounded by a semicircle of stakes, on each of which are listed the names of the soldiers executed in this way. During the First World War, 20,000 young soldiers were found guilty of offences carrying the death penalty. Of those, 3000 actually received it, and of those sentences, 346 were carried out. The families of these victims often carried the stigma of the label of "coward". Another side to this form of justice is the lasting emotional pain caused to those who were in the firing squads, shooting those found guilty. The usual cause for their offences has been re-attributed in modern times to post-traumatic stress syndrome and combat stress reaction. Britain was one of the last countries to withhold pardons for men executed during World War I: In 2007, the Armed Forces Act 2006 was passed allowing the soldiers to be pardoned posthumously #shotatdawn #weshallrememberthem @nationalpoppyappealcommittee
