Passchendaele Remembered.

‘I died in Hell, they called it Passchendaele’ – so goes the famous lines of Siegfried Sassoon’s poem. Today, July 31, marks the 100th anniversary of one of the most famous and brutal battles of the Great War. Commemorative events and exhibitions are taking place across Europe and the UK to pay respect and remember the British and Allied Forces campaign that ran from July to November at the cost of 500,000 men on all sides.
