Week-end en Baie de Somme

Thiepval Memorial – The Somme, France Strange today watching the Remembrance Ceremony at the Cenotaph, London that Commonwealth Countries which did not take part in World War I or II lay wreaths but the sacrifice of Irish soldiers is not represented. In World War I it is estimated of the 700,000 British military deaths 50,000 were Irish. Unlike in Britain, there was never conscription in Ireland so every Irish soldier was a volunteer.
