  Armistice Day / Veterans Day / Remembrance Day  

Poland Independence Day  

WW1 Events - this date in 1918

Only one model gallery relating to WW1 was sent in for this update, so only one model will appear, a German Triplane.  I have included quite a few items below relating to the end of the 14 -18 War, The Great War, The War To End All Wars, World War One or WW1.  

A somber day indeed, even 100 years later.  All countries paid a horrible price for this war in human terms.  France lost a whole generation of young men and I can't help but feel sad for all the young French girls that might not have found a man to marry in that Generation that was Lost.  Many Empires fell after WW1 and more Empires were critically wounded and fell later after WW2.  WW1 lead to WW2 and with the collapse of Empires after WW2, many colonial countries gained their independence.  We still feel the ripples through time from this great conflict 100 years ago with poorly drawn lines on maps leading to further conflicts etc.  And it all was started by one young Serbian student with a gun.....just the actions of one individual set the spark for all this painful history to unfold over the past 100 years.  But that one student wasn't to blame, societies had moved in conflicting directions leading to tensions and the eventual conflict.  Sadly even today leaders move in conflicting directions putting their national greed ahead of the good of humanity.  Sadly we have learned little in 100 years.

Lest We Forget.

Orlando Sucre Rosales is here with a very special 1/72 Eduard Fokker Dr.I.  This is the Dr.1 flown by the Red Baron's younger brother Lothar finished to a very high standard.  Beautiful work Orlando, thanks for remembering this special day.

John McCrae

John McCrae's grave

His words are called to mind every year on 11 November

Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918) was a Canadian poet, physician, author, artist and soldier during World War I, and a surgeon during the Second Battle of Ypres, in Belgium. He is best known for writing the famous war memorial poem "In Flanders Fields". McCrae died of pneumonia near the end of the war.

This is a colourised version of a sepia portrait of him taken in 1916.

"In Flanders Fields"
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead, short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

A collection of his poetry, In Flanders Fields and Other Poems (1918), was published after his death.

Today, the poppy – the internationally recognized symbol of Remembrance Day – owes its significance to McCrae’s poem, written, the Canadian War Museum notes, while sitting on the back step of an ambulance near his medical aid post. "In the field around him, crosses marked the graves of dead soldiers, including those of (his best friend Alexis) Helmer and other Canadians killed the previous day… Poppies grew in the area at the time and McCrae’s own notes refer to birds singing despite the noise of battle."


  Last American Soldier to die in WW1

Henry Nicholas John Gunther (June 6, 1895 – November 11, 1918) was an American soldier and the last soldier of any of the belligerents to be killed during World War I. He was killed at 10:59 a.m., one minute before the Armistice was to take effect at 11 a.m.


  Last French Soldier to die in WW1

Augustin-Joseph Victorin Trιbuchon (30 May 1878 – 11 November 1918) was the last French soldier killed during World War I. He was shot 15 minutes before the Armistice came into effect, at 10.45am on 11 November 1918. The French Army, embarrassed to have sent men into battle after the armistice with the Germans had been signed, recorded the date of his death as earlier by one day.


  Last British Empire Soldier to die in WW1

George Lawrence Price. Private George Lawrence Price (Regimental Number: 256265) (December 15, 1892 – November 11, 1918) was a Canadian soldier. He is traditionally recognized as the last soldier of the British Empire to be killed during the First World War.


  Last British Soldier to die in WW1

George Edwin Ellison (10 August 1878 – 11 November 1918) was the last British soldier to be killed in action during the First World War. He died at 09:30 am (90 minutes before the armistice came into effect) while on a patrol on the outskirts of Mons, Belgium.


  Last German Soldier to die in WW1

The final German soldier killed was a Lt Erwin Alexander Thomδ who was shot by American troops who had not heard of the ceasefire, when he walked towards them to tell them they could billet in the buildings his men had been using as they had vacated it. A very sad story, and as far as I know the final loss of the war.

Erwin Alexander Thomδ
born 7th October 1896  lived in Stuttgart and was a merchant by profession
He entered the army of the Kingdom of Wόrttemberg as a volunteer on 7th April 1915 and came to the Ulanen-Regiment "Kφnig Karl" (1. Wόrttembergisches) Nr. 19.On 30th July 1915 he came to the 4th Eskadron of the Ulanen-Regiment Nr. 19 and went into the field.
On 1st February 1917 he came to 2nd Eskadron of the Ulanen-Regiment Nr. 19.
During the war he saw service at the Western and the Italian front.
He was killed 11th November 1918 by an infantery bullet at Inor near Stenay (France)
His body was returned to Germany and reburied in 1923. Sadly his grave has no marker.
