so very cathartic reading this post. part of me wants to put the other side of the story but I don't think there is one - oh how i hated those posters. i guess i can see a case for freshening up the silhouette of a Tommie on the Western Front but I'd rather they chose a picture of Hamburg after a firestorm, some letters of this ilk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tN55otCOUo or just published this table: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II_casualties. The poppy appeal underlines the fact that war is part of all of us - the campaign makes it about somebody else. A new media reprise: if you can read between the sledging in the comment stream, the way wars past are remembered on youtube is good. e.g. I know this video is cheesy-as but it's kind of sobering. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oav6I0DcfY
