WW1 Celebrations: 100 years on. Scots New Year & the end!



Next year (2014) will be the 100 year anniversary of WW1. I believe alot of events will be taking place across the globe for this particular event. 

The Black Watch (Scottish soldiers) celebrating New Year. Like most things in WW1 we have mud in this photo, lots and lots of it. I am not sure but it looks like a camp of some sort, most probably a little off the front line. They seemed rather happy, maybe there was a ceasefire that day!

1918: Crowds outside Buckingham Palace, London, celebrate the Armistice. The end of the War, huge numbers of people across the country joined parties and gatherings.

U.S. 27th Infantry Division; end of World War I. We can often forget that the War was in fact a global event. American troops here marching through New York to mark the end of the War.
