4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 8 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The British Unknown Warrior (Paperback)
A well written account of an interesting event. The story is probably as comprehensive as any can be of this seminal moment in the history of both the Great War and Britain's traditions of remembrance. Those traditions almost all date from the unveiling of the Cenotaph and the burial of the Unknown Warrior. The author claims to attempt to clear-up ambiquities in the original, sometimes conflicting, records. However, in so doing he creates his own : on the cover he quotes the signal from the warship carrying the body home, inside he quotes it again with different words. Later he quotes the wording on the wreath card from the King and Queen but the picture of the card shows the wording to be different.

For all that I am glad to have read it and found the pictures most illuminative.

A small point over the review. The comment made over the King and Queen's message on the wreath being different is easly explained: the picture shows the inscription from their wreath laid in November 1919. while the king's wording is from the wreath laid in 1920.
