Photographer's Note

This is the third and final post from the pretty village of Hutton-le-Hole in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.
In nearly every city, town or village in the UK there is a monument to the war-dead. Mostly they were erected after WW1, as, with an estimated number of deaths worldwide of 15million people, there wasn’t a village without its casualties. No one really knows how many war memorials there are in the UK, but current estimates place the number at more than 60,000. There was no organised national effort to erect memorials; just local communities wanting to remember their own losses.
As you see there is a poppy wreath laid on the memorial, indicating the recent Armistice Day. On the Sunday nearest to *November 11th each year there is a ceremony at 11am at every war memorial in the country to remember the dead from all wars. Even here with very few permanent residents (as most of the homes are just summer residencies nowadays) a wreath has been laid.
You can also see the war memorial in the background of my previous post

*WWI ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month 1918.
