...We Will Remember Them. Seeing has it is near to the 11th hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month. I have decided to post these triptych. The first sepia toned monochrome photographic print is a still-life study of a 1939 issue 'gas rattle.' The middle print features a row of WWII medals that belonged to a RAMC Medical Orderly and Ambulance Driver who landed at Sword Beach on D-Day, he was also one of the first Allied soldiers to enter and liberate Belsen concentration camp.
The final print features two postcards of The East Yorkshire Regiment marching near Beverley. This is from the First World War. All monochrome photographic prints were then sepia and selenium toned on matt fibred based photographic paper.
