4 AUGUST 2014:  THE CENTENARY OF THE DECLARATION OF THE GREAT WAR:

CALL FOR IMAGES TO BE TAKEN ON THAT DAY

 

 

The DVJ is undertaking a photographic project to commemorate the centenary of the Great War.   We’re asking all RPS members, and anyone else who is interested (so invite your family and friends), to take an image on 4 August of something that commemorates WWI for them or of something that is important to them which might not exist if the outcome of WWI had been different.   Remember that there will be country-wide ceremonies to mark the day which may be well worth documenting.

 

Please send up to three images to DVJ-WWI@rps.org.   All images will be put onto an on-line gallery, where they will form a record of the day for the future.

 

As soon as the on-line gallery is activated we will send you a link to it.   

 

Please help the RPS to commemorate this event, which had such an impact on the land we live in.

 

Best wishes, Mo

The images I will upload to the WW1 Centenary site, are from Shotley this morning - A lot has been talked about the first casualty and the first shots fired but the actions of the Royal Navy seem to have been overlooked - one of four British sailors buried at Shotley War Grave from HMS Amphion, Albert was one of the very first casualties on the night of 5th August when the Cruiser was sunk by a German mine shortly after the Mine-layer was sunk by Amphion's attendant Destroyers - approximately 169 RN Sailors killed and 41 German survivors of the first sinking also died.

God bless them all!
