We Will Remember Them
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
-Robert Laurence Binyon
‘We Will Remember Them’ is an ongoing body of work looking at different aspects of remembrance. This work takes place across many memorial sites from areas in France and Belgium to the local memorials in the towns and villages around Dumfriesshire. The aim of this body of work is to state that remembrance is every day, not just one day a year. This work has been inspired by the great importance of not forgetting the brave souls who sadly lost their lives to secure our freedom. This project will not only look at the memorials of the Commonwealth, but also German and Jewish memorials, as they too suffered tremendous loses during both World Wars.
