The 100th anniversary of the Armistice is on 11 November, the Armistice being the formal agreement that ended the fighting of the First World War between the Allied Powers and Germany. In a famous rhythmic sequence, it came into force on ‘the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month’.
On 10 October, Tim Koch made an appeal to HTBS readers to send him pictures of war memorials at rowing clubs from around the world. There are quite a lot of them at British rowing clubs, but they are also seen at clubs in America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
On 11 November 2018, I would like to post as large a collection as possible of pictures of such memorials, preferably from all around the world. To do this, I would like HTBS Types to e-mail pictures of any monuments to fallen oarsmen that they know of to me.
