12030002

One item of interest is the date range on the monument – 1914 to 1919. Most people regard WW1 as ending on 11th November, 1918 as Turkey, Austria-Hungary and finally Germany conclude armistice negotiations but that was just when the fighting stopped. The official end to the Great War didn’t happen until 28th June, 1919 when the Treaty of Versailles was signed.
