“Battle Of The Somme” #WeAreHere Tributes Across The U.K. By Uniformed Reenactment Volunteers.

by Anura Guruge

Bloodiest known battle
in all of human history.

794,238 Allied troops from the
U.K., Australia, Bermuda, Canada, India, Newfoundland,
New Zealand, South Africa, Southern Rhodesia & France
lost their life in this battle
that lasted from July 1 to November 18, 1916.

[The U.S. did NOT participate in WW I until April 6, 1917.]

This #WeAreHere reenactment by 1,500 uniformed volunteers
was to remind people of all those that were lost.
It appears that each volunteer carried business cards
showing the name one that died in the battle.

Very neat. Very British. Very touching.
Very sobering.

Fancy that.
I had no idea.
I just happened to catch a glimpse of it on ESPN cricinfo.com
when I was gathering material for my West Indies post.

I typically don’t try to follow cricket news because I do not
want to see (or hear) the scores since I am always WAY behind
in terms of watching the matches on TV.
So I avoid cricket other than on TV.

So here is some information.

The U.S. lost to Canada.
As I expected lots of Indian and British names —
I am surprised that there are no Sri Lankansin the U.S. team.

Ruvindu Gunasekera, the Canadian opener,
the TOP scorer of the match — with 51,
is, of course, from Sri Lanka. Classic name.

But the U.S. has won against Suriname & Bermuda.
