  4. Rememberance Day

    To my mind, there is in this country a still latent sense of triumphalism after having been on the winning side of both the major conflicts of the last century. That's not to say that that's the main, or even a minor focus of the Rememberance Day commemoration. But it seems, counter-intuitively, to reinforce it. It's focus on solely British fallen, and it's tendency to bring to the fore heroic stories of bemedalled servicemen, rather than the horror of war obscures the true nature of modern warfare. The language is steeped in words of 'sacrifice' and 'service', rather than that of horror or despair or lives thrown away in vain.
