This Armistice Day, we will remember them.

And Yemen. And Ukraine. And Gaza.

They Shall Not Grow Old

Lego Red Flower

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them
War is raging once again Europe. For those already fallen, and for those that will;

Remembrance Sunday

Lego Great War Dogfight, Fokker Vs Airco

Today is Remembrance Sunday in The Lego Car Blog’s home nation, and never has a Lego image seemed more beautifully suited.

Henrik Jensen‘s wonderful dogfight between a German Fokker Eindecker EIII and his previously featured British Airco DH2 reminds us that the First World War claimed an enormous amount of life on both sides, and was the first war where conflict rather than disease caused the majority of the loss.

The war itself was pretty pointless, yet around 6 million Allied and 4 million Axis Powers servicemen lost their lives, along with an estimated 2 million civilians. We remember them all, including those our forebears fought against.

Remembrance Day

Lego Tiger Tank

In memory of the fallen

This Remembrance Sunday we’ve decided to remind ourselves that the horror of war affected both sides during the World conflicts, and as such it seemed fitting to post this German Tiger Tank, which was uploaded to Flickr by LegoUli yesterday. Most soldiers who fought for the Axis powers during World War II were not Nazis, they were ordinary men conscripted to fight for the ideals of their nation’s leaders.

In recent conflicts the traditional Allies are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with nations deemed sworn enemies 50 years ago. Today we remember the injured, the lost, and those they have left behind. To find out more about the 2012 Poppy Appeal, please click here.
