Sandown, Isle of Wight, England, UK

Along Sandown's seaside, a Celtic cross commemorates lives lost in war.  At its base, blood-red poppies symbolize the ultimate sacrifice.  Today, the cross bears these words:  "Remember the love of them who came not home from the wars 1914-18 -- 1939-45."  Names follow.  The Isle of Wight weeps.  [2011]
