Every time I hear the last post I get a lump in my throat.

They gave their lives so that others may live.

We will remember them.

Remember all the men who have died.
Remember all the battles fought
Remember all the tears families cried
Remember it was freedom the soldiers brought


We will remember them.

That's the stupid part about war, some one gets their knickers in a twist then people try and kill each other for 6 years, then they become good friends and Allies.

Christmas 1915 in World War One showed what people really want. Singing and playing football in no-mans land between German and British soldiers. Unfortunately politicians are able to mess up almost everything.

The main Christmas truce was 1914, although in the following months, there were a few sporadic attempts at truces; a German unit attempted to leave their trenches under a flag of truce on Easter Sunday 1915, but were warned off by the British opposite them, and later in the year, in November, a Saxon unit briefly fraternised with a Liverpool battalion. Come December, there were explicit orders by the Allied commanders to forestall any repeat of the previous Christmas truce. Individual units were encouraged to mount raids and harass the enemy line, whilst communicating with the enemy was discouraged by artillery barrages along the front line throughout the day. The prohibition was not completely effective, however, and a small number of brief truces occurred.
