I'm told that there were 122 people at this vigil. Sometimes one spoke and all others listened. Sometimes all sang as one and the town listened. And at the end, when all the lights had gone out, all fell silent and the war memorial spoke.
It spoke of men alive and well 100 year's ago, men who hoped to carve out a full life. Men who would be cut down by war leaving their wives and mothers and fathers to carve out their names on this memorial.
