Interesting media spin ...

This was the World War One commemoration I attended on Wednesday ... interesting story, one that falls into the realm of fiction in some places.

The story is so incorrect as to be stunning.

Fascinating story.. what was incorrect?? Even more fascinating to me, having seen the monuments to the New zealanders in both Gallipoli and in ?? Flanders?? Where were we??

There were a few details, the biggest being the fact that the local people didn't pay for the stone. It was paid for by the Italian Sciascia's.

We were in Mesen but wandered all over the place, around Ieper and Zonnebeke too :)
