“The Great War” claimed them


n.b. It is interesting how “The Great War” is generally thought of having ended in 1918. On this memorial the dates are clearly marked 1914 ~ 1919. The discrepancy may be due to deaths occurring in Russia, where Allied forces were sent to fight Lenin’s Bolsheviks in support of the White Russians.
