Over Summer I was privileged to be near enough to Dryburgh Abbey for work and was able to call in the see the family plot of Field Marshall Douglas Haig. It contains the graves of Haig and his wife Dorothy. As he was the architect of British victory in the First World War it seems right that he should be honoured on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice. Here are my photos of his family plot.
Today I shall be remembering the three unknown German soldiers recovered at Bullecourt in 2017 and 2018
Jakob Hönes, Alfred Thielicke and the unknown British soldier of the King's Owen Liverpool Regiment, recovered at Serre in 2003
Gefreiter Leopold Rothärmel and several other German soldiers and one Scottish soldier recovered at Loos in 2005
I was honoured to be involved with their recovery.
We will remember them.
