“100 years after British Troops left in their hundreds of thousands on trains to fight in the First World War, modern soldiers from the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers gathered on the platform at King’s Cross to meet another important train representing those who never made the journey home. The railway helped Britain’s forces to mobilise and The Fusiliers were among the first soldiers to leave for the front as part of the British Expeditionary Force.

Coinciding with the centenary of the eve of the end of the Battle of the Somme, Virgin Trains ran a special Remembrance themed locomotive across this morning’s East Coast route.”

I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which out techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.
