EDITORS COMMENTS
This poignant photograph captures the solemn and respectful scene at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey on Armistice Day, 11 November 1920. The ceremony, held to honor the unknown soldier who had made the ultimate sacrifice during the First World War, was attended by thousands of mourners and dignitaries. Four sentries, with heads bowed and hands clasped behind their backs, stand vigil over the grave, their faces etched with gravity and reverence. The Padres, dressed in their robes, look on from the side, their presence adding a sense of spiritual significance to the occasion. The Union Jack flag, draped over the coffin, flutters gently in the breeze, a symbol of the nation's grief and gratitude. The sentries, representing the unwavering commitment and sacrifice of the British military, continue their watch, ensuring that the unknown warrior is never forgotten. This powerful image serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made during the Great War and the enduring respect and honor paid to those who gave their lives in service to their country.
