Fields of Battle Exhibition – On now and until Tuesday 11 November 2014
An open-air exhibition which captures the eerie peace and beauty of First World War battlefields as they appear today is to open in St James’s Park to mark the war’s centenary. The Fields of Battle/Lands of Peace exhibition, sponsored by The Royal British Legion, features sixty powerful images of contemporary landscapes from Flanders to Gallipoli. The exhibition is free to all members of the public and will run until Armistice Day on 11 November.
The photographs are shot by award-winning photo-journalist Michael St. Maur Sheil who has combined his passion for history and landscape to demonstrate how the battlefields of the Great War are now part of the landscape of modern Europe. – See more at: http://www.royalparks.org.uk/whats-on/upcoming-events/fields-of-battle-exhibition#sthash.ltPQgUda.dpuf.
Camera Club Outing – 9 November 2014.
Unfortunately this has been cancelled. Security has tightened a lot in recent years and, whilst it is possible to get close to the Cenotaph if you are early enough – several hours before the service – the views are limited by the soldiers, etc. that line the street. Until recently it was possible to go to Horse Guards Parade, where the “old soldiers” assemble before marching into Whitehall but it is now a ticket-only set-up. The other part of the outing was to view the poppies at the Tower but I went mid-week and it was very crowded and I’m assuming a Sunday would be more so, especially as it’s the start of half term.
