“Lest we Forget.” Remembrance, respect and reconciliation.
Last Sunday I attended the Remembrance Service organized by the British Embassy in Bangkok to commemorate all those who lost their lives in conflict during World War 1 and World War II.
The service was dedicated to remembrance, respect and reconciliation.
I read today that part of the battlefields of Guadalcanal one of the most significant World War II sites in the Pacific might have been restricted by the erection of a security fence near Alligator Creek, a site which includes a monument to the war dead of one of the country’s that saw the loss of 38,000 of its troops in the Solomon’s campaign.
Remembrance, respect and reconciliation seems to be much needed to resolve this reported issue and I hope all those concerned with the reported erection of the security fence will act accordingly and soon.
