Liverpool - Part 2 Photographs by Patrick
THE Giants have been and
gone, but the memory they have left behind in all who saw them will
live on, as it is hope that their story, which was told, about the
brave men who went to war and their families back home. The event
ran from Wednesday, 23 July 2014 to Sunday, 27 July 2014. It was
aimed at inspiring us all to learn more about the 5,000 men who
joined the Liverpool Pals in response to Lord Derby's rallying cry
to join Kitchener's Army and then of the 2,800 who lost their lives
in what was to become known as World War 1. Jean-Luc Courcoult and
the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Joe Anderson, had agreed to
present a very Liverpool aspect of WW1, The Liverpool Pals, by using
the Giants to read out letters which had been sent home by 2 of the
members of the Liverpool Pals, and to expand on the memories evoked.
Many people had felt inspired by this, others, possibly those who
only saw the figures en-route, found it harder to make the
connection! Did it work for you? Did this and all the attendant
