We Will Remember Them

It was moving to stand in front of the war memorial under the portico by the main entrance of the British Museum yesterday, Remembrance Day. The simple words, that we know so well, were ones written by Laurence Binyon, a member of staff in the museum’s Department of Prints and Drawings.

Later in the day we reflected on the students of the British School at Athens who lost their lives in the Great War.

We will remember them.
