TO ALL MY FRIENDS THE WORLD OVER I WISH YOU ALL  A

VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPERUS NEW YEAR,

THIS TIME OF YEAR MEANS MANY THINGS TO MANY PEOPLE A TIME OF GOOD FOOD AND GOOD CHEER ETC,

BUT SPARE A THOUGHT FOR THOSE MEN THAT MADE ALL THIS POSSIBLE IN THE WAR TO END ALL WARS!!,

AND ESPECIALLY TO THE GALLANT "OFFICERS AND MEN"

OF THE " ROYAL NAVAL DIVISION"WHO FOUGHT LIKE TIGERS

IN ANTWERP AND GALLIPOLI AND ALL OVER THE WESTERN FRONT IN WW1, AND ARE OFTEN FORGOTTEN, IN THE GREATER SCHEME OF THINGS, AND ARE OFTEN OVERLOOKED IN THE VARIOUS DOCUMENTERIES THAT ARE DOING THE ROUNDS NOW,

AS LONG AS I HAVE BREATH IN MY BODY AND I HAVE ACCESS TO THE INTERNET, AT LEAST HERE!! YOU WILL HAVE A  VOICE,

AND BE HEARD .

WHILST THIS WEBSITE IS DEVOTED TO THE ROYAL NAVAL DIVISION IN WW1

WE MUST NOT FORGET THE OTHER SERVICES INVOLVED IN THE GREAT WAR TO END ALL WARS,AND WITH THIS IN MIND I OFFER MY TRIBUTE, FOR 2016 --2019 WHICH WILL STAND AS A PERMANENT DISPLAY , THE ONLY THING  THAT WILL CHANGE IS THE PAGE HEADING     2016      2019 AND ONWARDS 

IT IS A DIORAMA  THAT REPRESENTS THE " CHRISTMAS TRUCE" CHRISTMAS 1914,

IT SHOWS A SMALL SECTION OF THE WESTERN FRONT , WHERE THE FOOTBALL,

MATCH WAS PLAYED, THE BACKING IMAGE SHOWS PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THAT TIME, " CHRISTMAS 1914" BUT AS THIS IS THE CENTENERY OF THE START OF WW1,

AND 2016 IS THE 100th ANNIVERSARY OF THE BATTLE OF THE SOMME,

I USE THE DIORAMA AS A TRIBUTE TO ALL CONCERNEDTO SHOW THAT  AMONGST THE DEATH AND MASS SLAUGHTER , THAT A SPARK OF HUMANITY , CAN STILL ,

BRING PEACE   ALBEIT A SHORT   ONE,

THE IMAGES  BELOW  SHOW 2 VIEWS   THE SECOND IS A CLOSE UP  TO SHOW GREATER DETAIL
