Awesome Verow!

 

Here's a little something I found on Weedon Osborne, the Medal of Honor recipient who's headstone is in one of your photos.

Marion's note: This website is having problems. Looks like they moved their pages.

Their new link doesn't work either, for you also receive this error message: There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

I always admired Charles Schultz for bringing a bit of WWI history to the public light via the comic strip. Ah, Snoopy vs. The Red Baron. Lee and I are big Snoopy/Charlie Brown fans too.

 

There were such truces during other wars too including the Civil War. I always enjoyed listening to Shelby Foote's (rest his soul) tales of soldiers from the north and south, calling out to each other.

 

"Hey Yank!"

 

"What cha want Reb?" :pdt12:

M-1 TALKING ABOUT A WW 1 MEMORIAL. I WOULD LIKE TO OFFER

ALL TO LOG ON TO THE WW 1 WE HAVE IN KANSAS CITY, MO. I THINK

IT IS THE ONLY ONE IN THE U.S.A. THE TOWER HAD A PERPETUAL GAS

FLAME THAT WAS ALWAYS ON BUT WHEN WW 11 WAS DECLARED IT

WAS TURNED OFF. NOW IT IS STEAM THAT COMES OUT WITH THE

RIGHT COLOR LIGHTS TO SIGNIFY FLAMES. HERE IS THE WEB----

---WWW.NWWWONE.ORG. IT SHOULD ALSO SHOW A REPLICA OF

FLANDERS FIELD, WITH OVER A THOUSAND POPPIES. SO WE, K.C. MO.

ALSO HAS ITS WW 1 MEMORIAL. ROCKY :armata_PDT_37:

Rocky, can't find the site you posted. I copied the link and it says, no such thing. I tried taking out the "n", and tried www.wwwone.org, and that doesn't work either.

Good for you, no need to make your brick easy to pronounce for us gringos!

In Flanders Fields,

 

 

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

 

We are the dead. Short days ago,

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved and now we lie

In Flanders fields

 

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you, from failing hands, we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields

 

 

Vee
