The Ring of Remembrance

The Ring of Remembrance

Close to the battles of Artois, I invite you to take another look at the centenary of the Great War, because in Ablain-Saint-Nazaire, it is no longer a question of nations, allies or enemies. With the ring of Remembrance, one of the greatest memorials in the world, it is 500 sheets of metal on which are engraved, in alphabetical order, without distinction of nationality, rank or religion, the names of  579606 soldiers now combined Forever in a common humanity. Here the quiet seizes the visitor. I recommend you climb the hill on foot, from the parking  of the  memorial 1418 in Souchez, before entering the ring, it takes 15 minutes before arriving on the plateau and when the night goes down, the impression is even stronger.
