TOMB OF THE NAMELESS WARRIOR OF BRITISH RACE

TOMB OF THE NAMELESS WARRIOR OF BRITISH RACE

On the second anniversary of the Armistice, November n, 1920, the ashes of one of the Empire's sons, brought from a nameless grave in France, were laid to rest in the nave of Westminster Abbey. The Unknown Warrior typifies every British Mother's son who died unidentified in the red welter of battle; and, as was fitting, the interment was witnessed by a vast concourse of reverent mourners that included the King and all the principal officers of State. Every successive Armistice Day brings its great procession of pilgrims to this grave.
