The first (top image) features a genuine British Infantry Helmet from WWII, a replica cricket/clicker (if you have ever seen the film: "The Longest Day," then you will know what this item was used for. A single red rose lays upon the sand.
The middle or second image features a photograph of six British soldiers having just arrived back at Paragon Railway Station in Hull after being rescued from the beaches of Dunkirk in 1940. The documents featured are copies of a diagram of German Beach Defences etc for the period June 1944. White carnation flowers complete the scene.
The bottom and final photograph in this selection of images features a set of medals that belonged to a British Royal Army Medical Corps Soldier (his unit was one of the first to enter and liberate Belsen Concentration Camp in WWII). A yellow tulip completes this still-life scene.
