The 352


My partner Louise and I visited the National arboretum,in Staffordshire today, as it is Armed forces day, seeing all the memorials was awe inspiring, however one had a profound effect on me,  SHOT AT DAWN  I cannot get the image out of my head,it’s a statue of a soldier blindfolded, behind him approx 351 wooden plinths, that represent the 352 British soldiers executed, for cowardice and desertion.
They were exonerated and pardoned, the youngest represented by the soldier just 17.
It is fitting and poinient that this memorial  lays on the eastern most point of the 150 acre site, as it’s the first to see dawns early light.
