The above monochrome photographic print features a white stone statue and wooden posts that represents the 302 British soldiers who were 'Shot at Dawn,' by their own side during World War One.
It is therefore perhaps appropriate that I have selected this particular image to upload bearing in mind that this country is now remembering and commemorating the 100th Anniversary and start of this terrible war.
If you have never visited this location before, then I would advise you to do so. It is a wonderful, peaceful and emotive location. Located here also is the National Armed Forces Memorial. Visit: http://www.thenma.org.uk for further details.
