Presenting War Service Memories

Posted on September 12, 2014 at 8:44 PM
The Centenary of WW1 has awakened our memories and emotions of the past.

The participants often chose to try and forget their experiences, and, if they spoke about it, it was only to those who had gone through the same horrors.

Their descendants are trying to preserve and understand what remains of their sacrifice.

Some examples and stories we have been involved with include -

  • A 'lost' postcard sent to a soldier, who before his mail arrived to him, was badly wounded at the Battle of Fromelles. The 'undelivered' postcard was found in the mud of the Somme by another soldier and by this great good fortune it eventually reached the addressee.

  • The 303 clip of bullets worn on a bandolier that stopped a Boer bullet in the South African war.

  • The English-French dictionary that stopped a piece of shrapnel.

  • A woman who saw a familiar face in a photograph on display while touring the Western Front who later became able to identify one of the un-named soldiers as her Great Uncle.

It is not unusual at our design counter for there to be tears while discussing the presentation of these very personal items that mean so much to their owners.

As a picture framer it is essential to have or to access both correct preservation and presentation procedures, as well as understanding the nature of the contents intended  for display.

But one key difference is that for a phrase to be truly aphoristic, it needs to be a short statement.
Guy standing at a bookshelf
This quote originated from Thomas Howell in New Sonnets and Pretty Pamphlets.
If you can do something, then you need to do it for the good of others.
Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
He’s earned that title because he’s authored dozens of aphorisms.
Not good.
Aphoristic statements also appear in everyday life, such as daily speeches made by politicians and leaders.
They’re written in countless books and passed down as folk wisdom.
Now that we’ve covered the aphorism definition, are you ready for more examples.
What does it mean.
Remember that.
Let me ask you.
The origins of this saying are open for debate, but it’s primarily attributed to Abraham Lincoln.
The original saying was, Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.
From there, you can build your story around it.
