Remember the Great War

How should the Great War centenary be marked? (2014 to 2018 and also the Treaty of Versailles centenary in 2019).

This is the (rather phallic) war memorial at Ellington in Huntingdonshire.  It commemorates the men of the village who went away and did not come back.  Every November it is still the focus of village respect.

We do not need to wonder how the servicemen of Ellington wanted us to remember the Great War and their fallen comrades.  There must be no sorrow.  We must be proud of the British victory in the Great War, especially because it was won with Ellington blood, and we must emulate the noble behaviour of the Ellington heroes.
