The Great War

2014-10-20 ShankillGraveSomme+
This new work in the Somme memorial Garden Of Reflection (between the Shankill graveyard and the Mountainview Tavern), comprising both mural and headstones (“A soldier of the great war”) in a flower-bed, commemorates the centenary of the first world war, or, as it was initially known, the great war. The mural shows a soldier, presumably from the Ulster division, on the fields of Flanders: “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 1914-2014”
Previously from the Garden: Reflections On The Somme | Somme Memorial; and from the graveyard: Queen Of Ireland, Empress Of India | Interment
