The Unknown Warrior

Westminster Abbey’s most solemn monument contains the body of an unidentified soldier picked at random from the battlefields of the First World War.

A black and whiteb image of the coffin containing the remains of an unknwon British soldier of the Great War. The coffin rests on a standard draped over a low platform and lies alone in the vaulting hall Westminster Abbey. The photo has a hazy, dreamy quality to it.

I’m interested in lots of things and write about them. History, nature, environment, business topics, experimental stories and anything else I fancy.
