Remember boy that your forefather's died
Lost in millions for a country's pride
But they never mention the trenches of Belgium
When they stopped fighting and they were one

A spirit stronger than war was at work that night

December 1914 cold, clear and bright
Countries' borders were right out of sight
When they joined together and decided not to fight

All together now
All together now
All together now, in no man's land

All together now
All together now
All together now, in no man's land



The same old story again
All those tears shed in vain
Nothing learnt and nothing gained
Only hope remains

All together now
All together now
All together now
In no man's land
All together now
All together now
All together now
In no man's land

The boys had their say they said no
Stop the slaughter let's go home, let's go, let's go

Dunoon pupils uncover 'first' WWI Christmas truce death
Quote:
A school project may have identified the first fatality after the 1914 Christmas Day truce during World War I.

Students at Dunoon Grammar School researched the story of former pupil Walter Sinclair Smith for a Remembrance Day project.

They discovered he was killed by a German sniper late on Christmas Day after an accidentally-fired shot prompted a return to hostilities.

The school, in Argyll and Bute, now hopes to trace any living relatives.

The unofficial truce took place at several places across the Western Front around Christmas in 1914.

Soldiers from both sides ventured into "no man's land" to exchange gifts and play football.

Making film
The pupils chose to research the history of Walter Smith from those commemorated on a brass plaque at their school, because he shared his name with the former Scotland football manager.

At the time of the truce, the soldier was serving with the 5th Cameronians Scottish Rifles in the trenches near Armentieres.

Late in the afternoon of Christmas 1914, while troops from opposing sides were mingling, a shot rang out from the British lines, accidentally fired by a regular from the Scottish Rifles.

We have tried to get across that Walter and other ex-pupils like him are more than just names engraved on a brass plaque, but real people who found themselves in the most terrible of events”

Sean McMahon
Dunoon pupil
A German sniper returned fire, shooting Walter through the head.

The pupils will produce a short film telling the story of Walter and his brothers, to be performed at the school as part of the Remembrance Day commemorations.

Argyll and Bute councillor Bruce Marshall praised the pupils for providing a "valuable addition to our local history".

"It's incredible to be able to place this young local man at this key juncture in the war," he said.

"Finding out more about him and his family has been extremely important in helping pupils understand that the young men who went off to fight these wars were just like them, yet had to endure hardships which young people nowadays would find difficult to comprehend.

"I congratulate all those involved in this project, and look forward to seeing the film once it has been completed."

'Remarkable and tragic'
Sean McMahon has been chosen to play the part of Walter in the school production.

He said: "We have tried to get across that Walter and other ex-pupils like him are more than just names engraved on a brass plaque but real people who found themselves in the most terrible of events.


A temporary grave was erected on Boxing Day 1914
"It was amazing that Walter took part in the iconic Christmas truce of 1914, but heartbreaking how he was shot on Christmas Day itself."

The pupils have tried various routes to track down any of Walter's living relatives, including putting an advertisement in the local paper, but have so far drawn a blank.

Head teacher Stewart Shaw said: "I am very proud of the work of our young people in uncovering and retelling the story of our former pupil.

"The story of Walter Sinclair Smith is remarkable and tragic in equal measure. It is important as a school community that we do all we can to remember former pupils and staff who have fallen during conflict.

"Each name listed will have a similar story to Walter's and their sacrifice will never be forgotten.

"We are still hopeful that someone might come forward who is related to Walter in some way. It would be wonderful to have any living relatives with us as guests of honour when we give the film its first showing."

Christmas Truce letters give insight into break in WW1 hostilities
The Christmas Truce is one of the most remarkable incidents of the First World War, when rival troops emerged from the trenches to celebrate the festive season together.

Now newly recovered letters from soldiers on the front line show the true emotion of the day and how the temporary respite from the horrors of war was started by the Germans.

On December 25, 1914, British and German troops climbed out of their trenches and crossed no-man's land to shake hands, sing carols and share cigarettes.

The soldiers famously played football together, kicking around empty bully-beef cans and using steel helmets as goalposts.

The unauthorised truce spread across much of the 500-mile Western Front, where more than a million soldiers were encamped.

The latest letters shown by researchers at the family history website findmypast.co.uk in records of British newspapers, revealed how the German troops sang songs and asked the tommies to come and join them for a drink.

A soldier wrote that “the Germans started singing and lighting candles about 7.30 on Christmas Eve, and one of them challenged anyone of us to go across for a bottle of wine.

“One of our fellows accepted the challenge and took a big cake to exchange.”

Another wrote: “We had a church service and sang hymns, we met the Germans midway between the trenches and wished each other a ‘Merry Christmas’.

“We exchanged buttons, badges, caps, etc, and we all sang songs.”

Another letter recalls that “the Germans seem very nice chaps who were awfully sick of the war”.

Another soldiers reveals how the truce came to an end at 3pm when a German officer called his men in.

"The fellow I had the cigar off said as they parted: ‘today (Christmas Day) nice; tomorrow, shot’, he wrote.

“As he left me he held out his hand, which I accepted, and said: ‘Farewell, comrade.’

“With that we parted, and in all probability in the course of a day or so we shall be doing our utmost to kill each other.”

Debra Chatfield, a family historian at findmypast.co.uk, said: “These letters are among hundreds which were published in newspapers throughout the war and show the way that soldiers were unified by the Christmas tradition despite the war they were fighting.

“These letters are a fascinating way for us to read first-hand accounts of important events from our past, and these in particular highlight the tragedy of war. Soldiers spent the day swapping presents and pleasantries knowing that in a matter of hours they would be shooting at each other again.”

Christmas Truce herdacht onder de Menenpoort

Rino Deltombe, IEPER



Ieper -

Onder de Menenpoort te Ieper bevind er zich een groepje die zichzelf "Vrienden van de Menenpoort" noemen. Wekelijks en soms dagelijks wonen ze de Last Post bij en jaarlijks herdenken ze Christmas Truce op Kerstavond. Ook dit jaar herdenken ze dit. Christmas Truce was een indrukwekkende gebeurtenis tijdens de Eerste Wereldoorlog. Op Kerstavond 1914 kwamen de soldaten uit hun loopgraven, gingen het niemandsland op en vierden Kerstmis met de vijand, dit tegen de regels in.

Ze deelden chocolade, vertellen verhalen, tonen familiefoto's, speelden voetbal enz.... De krans die de Vrienden neer legden, samen met drie kinderen uit het publiek, toont een voetbal en een kaartje waarop Britten en Duitsers vertonen die voetballen.

Waar en op welke datum werd deze foto genomen?

Menenpoort 24 December 2012

Waarom moet deze foto ook in de krant?

Omdat Christmas Truce een vergeten gebeurtenis is. Iedereen viert Kerstmis op 24 december en vergeten eigenlijk wat er gebeurde 98 jaar geleden. Want ondanks de oorlog, was er tijdens de oorlog die ongeveer 1567 dagen duurde één dag vrede. Jaarlijks komen honderden bezoekers de Last Post bijwonen op Kerstavond en dit aantal zou mogen stijgen.

Ipswich: First World War soldier recounts Christmas Day truce

IT was the day the guns fell silent.


And now, a previously-unseen letter from an Ipswich soldier describing the famous football match of the Christmas Day truce in the First World War has been discovered.

Staff sergeant Clement Barker, from Ipswich, sent the letter home four days after Christmas 1914 when the British and German troops emerged from their trenches in peace.

He described how the truce began after a German messenger walked across No Man’s Land on Christmas Eve to broker the temporary cease-fire agreement.

British soldiers went out and recovered 69 dead comrades and buried them.

Sgt Barker said the impromptu football match then broke out between the two sides when a ball was kicked out from the British lines into No Man’s Land. Rodney Barker, 66, found the letter from his uncle when he was going through some old documents following his mother’s death.

Sgt Barker wrote to his brother Montague: “...a messenger came over from the German lines and said that if they did not fire Xmas day, they (the Germans) wouldn’t so in the morning (Xmas day).

“A German looked over the trench – no shots – our men did the same, and then a few of our men went out and brought the dead in (69) and buried them and the next thing happened a football kicked out of our trenches and Germans and English played football.

“Night came and still no shots. Boxing Day the same, and has remained so up to now...

“We have conversed with the Germans and they all seem to be very much fed up and heaps of them are deserting.

“Some have given themselves up as prisoners, so things are looking quite rosy.”

His optimistic outlook proved quite wrong, as the truce was the last act of chivalry between the two sides and the war went on for four more years, with the loss of ten million lives.

Sgt Barker joined the army in 1902 at the age of 18. He served with the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards and survived the Great War.

In 1920 he left the army and worked for the Ministry of Defence. He died in 1945 aged 61.

Mr Barker, a retired chartered surveyor from Fleet, Hampshire, said: “I never met my uncle and found these letter amongst some of my dad’s things after my mother passed away.

“It’s amazing that it is so matter of fact.

“He is talking about clearing away bodies one moment and then a game of football the next.”

The letter was featured on a recent episode of the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow.

James Taylor, a historian at the Imperial War Museum, said: “It is 98 years since the event so this letter is very significant.

“Various accounts of the truce exist so to have one surface after not being seen for almost a century is quite remarkable.”

World War I truce: Newly-discovered letters reveal British troops wanted to shoot Germans not play football

The First World War truce saw more than 100,000 British and German soldiers lower their weapons and leave trenches

Newly discovered letters have revealed that many British troops did not want to play ball when it came to the Christmas Day truce of 1914.

Previously unpublished messages from the Western Front describe how an entire regiment refused to take part in the festive ceasefire with the enemy.

Instead, the ­Scottish Seaforth Highlanders threatened to shoot Germans who tried to “fraternize”.

The First World War truce saw more than 100,000 British and German soldiers lower their weapons and leave trenches to exchange gifts.

It also resulted in the famous No Man’s Land football match, where troops from both sides had a friendly kickabout.

However, the unearthing of handwritten notes from Major John Hawksley to his sister Muriel in Darlington, Co Durham, reflect the unhappiness many soldiers felt at the unofficial ceasefire.

In one of the letters, to be auctioned next month by Bonham’s for around £4,000, he wrote: “This is an extraordinary state of things and I don’t altogether approve.

“The Seaforths would have none of it. When the Germans in front of them tried to fraternize and leave their trenches, the Seaforths warned that they would shoot.


"After dark, our men and the Germans whose trenches were only one hundred yards apart sang in English Home Sweet Home together. Then God Save the King was sung by both.

“Later on, a German shouted, ‘We won’t fire tomorrow if you don’t’. Our men shouted back ‘All right’.

"When it was light on Xmas day, each side showed itself above the trenches.

"First head and shoulders – then a little more until a German got out of his trench and then an Englishman did.”

Bairnsfather's Christmas Truce, 1914

Trench life was a great shock to Bairnsfather and he concealed his true feelings, as many officers did, under a puerile, public school approach to the war. It became a team game in which ritual patterns soon developed, so that preoccupation with routine dulled overt sensitivity to the horror all around.
Christmas 1914 saw a lull in the ‘game’, and Bairnsfather took part in one of the most extraordinary episodes of the Great War, an episode that might have brought him a court martial. It started on Christmas Eve. He tells the story himself.
The day had been entirely free from shelling, and somehow we all felt that the Boches, too, wanted to be quiet. There was a kind of invisible, intangible feeling extending across the frozen swamp between the two lines, which said ‘This is Christmas Eve for both of us – something in common.’
About 10 pm I made my exit from the convivial dug-out on the left of our line and walked back to my own lair. On arriving at my own bit of trench I found several of the men standing about, and all very cheerful. There was a good bit of singing and talking going on, jokes and jibes on our curious Christmas Eve, as contrasted with any former one, were thick in the air. One of my men turned to me and said:

‘You can ’ear ’em quite plain, sir!’
'Hear what?'
‘The Germans over there, sir; you can ’ear ’em singin’ and playin’ on a band or somethin’.

I listened; away out across the field, among the dark shadows beyond, I could hear the murmur of voices, and an occasional burst of some unintelligible song would come floating out on the frosty air. The singing seemed to be the loudest and most distinct a bit to our right. I popped into my dug-out and found the platoon commander.

Als Briten und Deutsche Weihnachtsfrieden schlossen

Es war Krieg, aber keiner wollte schießen: An Weihnachten 1914 kamen mitten im 1. Weltkrieg die Gegner aus den Schützengräben und feierten gemeinsam.


Von Claudia Becker

Quote:
Am Himmel stand ein blasser Mond. Bleich. Als hätte er die Farbe angenommen der Toten, die unten, im Schlamm, im Stacheldraht, im Niemandsland lagen. Am frühen Abend des 24. Dezember 1914 war der britische Gefreite Frederick W. Heath so traurig wie an keinem anderen Tag. Nur das Quietschen der feuchten Stiefel war zu hören, ab und zu ein geflüsterter Befehl und der Wind, der über das fremde Land fegte. Die Hände taten ihm weh von der feuchten Kälte.

Er lehnte an der Wand des Schützengrabens. Er starrte durch eine Luke auf den Graben an der anderen Seite, etwas 200 Meter entfernt, dort, wo die Deutschen saßen, hinter aufgeschütteter Erde, die wie Grabhügel aussahen. Frederick W. Heath dachte an zu Hause, an die Lichter, die jetzt entzündet wurden in den warmen Zimmern. In Gedanken hörte er Weihnachtslieder, weit weg. Er fragte sich, warum er hier sei. Weil es jemanden geben müsste, sagte er sich, der die Häuser mit den warmen Zimmern verteidigt.


Die Front war erstarrt

Quote:
Weihnachten, das hatten er und so viele andere Soldaten geglaubt, als sie im Sommer 1914 trunken vor Euphorie an die Front marschierten, Weihnachten sollte der Krieg zu Ende sein. Aber Weihnachten ging gar nichts mehr an der Westfront, die vom belgischen Nieuwpoort an der Nordsee bis zur Schweizer Grenze im Süden reichte und an der sich Deutsche auf der einen, Belgier, Franzosen und Briten auf der anderen Seite gegenüberlagen

Mag ik aan de mods voorstellen om deze "Rolf Harte" uit "Washington" (Is dat State of DC? Te moeilijk blijkbaar voor deze"Rolf") te "bannen" van deze site, en alle posts van dit ding te verwijderen?
Dat die persoon (? Is het wel een persoon?) een probleem heeft met e-cigarettes is zijn/haar probleem, niet het onze! En om dan de g*re moed te hebben om dat te linken aan de gruwelen van WO1 gaat mij persoonlijk toch ècht te ver.

Ad Breakdown: Sainsbury's WW1 Christmas truce advert.


Christmas supermarket adverts used to show a paper-hatted extended family, lashings of mince pies, copious tinsel, and an inordinately large turkey. But this year's Sainsbury's offering rewinds 100 years to dramatise the Christmas truce of 1914, writes Tom de Castella.

It starts with the boom of artillery. It's night and British soldiers huddle in the trenches. Snow is falling. A Tommy opens a parcel from home - out falls a woman's photo and a bar of chocolate. The Sainsbury's Tommy - for it is he - smiles. Silent Night rises eerily - at first in German and then in English. The Sainsbury's Tommy pokes his head above the trench and after momentary tension - will they shoot? - the two sets of soldiers are in No Man's Land playing football and chatting.

The protagonist hands his chocolate to a German called Otto and in return receives what looks like a piece of hardtack biscuit. In the distance the guns rumble, both sets of troops return to the trenches, and the rousing score morphs into meditative piano. "Christmas is for sharing," flashes up on screen, followed by the familiar orange Sainsbury's logo, and finally "Made in partnership with the Royal British Legion".

Some have seen it as a massive counter-offensive against John Lewis after their penguin and boy blockbuster. While John Lewis had opted for "a mawkish story about a lonely penguin" using CGI, Sainsbury's had created a moving memorial based on lots of historical research and austere production values, one newspaper review said. But for another it was a "dangerous and disrespectful masterpiece".

The Truce
The Day the War Stopped
Chris Baker


The Christmas Truce is seen as a satisfying and hopeful event in a war that is often regarded as unnecessary, bitter, hopeless and futile. Many accounts give a warm, poignant view of the truce, to the extent that it has gained totemic significance in the minds of the general public. Inspired by the centenary, and in the light of documentary evidence unavailable when previous accounts have been published, Chris Baker examines the events leading up to the 1914 truce.

In December 1914, some of the most flawed and costly attacks made by the British during the war occurred, including failed attacks at Messines, Ploegsteert and elsewhere on 18/19 December. The truce in part came about as a necessity to bury the large numbers of the dead from these attacks.

What did regulations say about fraternisation? What was happening behind the lines? Why was there a truce in some places but not others? Including an analysis of the British dead and those British and German units that are known to have taken part in the truce, along with a guided tour of the fields today, The Truce: The Day the War Stopped reveals the untold story of one of the most well-known and romanticised events of the First World War.
