I have come to realise that even though comemorating the soilders that died in combat during WW1 on the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th hour is an incrediable thing to do.
Yet it made me quesetion... Why dont we do it for other wars and all the soilders that have lost lives? It almost seems to me as if the soilders that fought bravely in the civil war, for example, deserve the same kind of recognition.
Even soilders today should be applauded for their hard work that they do for us to keep our freedom safe.
Shouldn't all of these soilders lives be equally as important, no matter what the cause they were fighting for?
In my opinion, they all deserve to be remembered given that all life is precious, and they gave theirs to save ours....

  1. Remembrance Day does commemorate all soldiers, but it seems it's only post-1914, so none who took part in the Napoleonic Wars etc. But Afghanistan, Iraq, Falklands etc, are all in there too, as well as those who died in Northern Ireland and other non-combat operations.
