Remembrance of World War I in St. Girons, France

France, like England, is full of war memorials that list the dead from World War I or World War II. Frequently these consist of a simple cross with an engraved plaque filled with names.

The World War I monument in St. Girons, Midi-Pyrenees, France is a more elaborate monument though and the sculpture is quite poignant in its portrayal of grief and loss.
