100 Years Ago

Believe it or not, this picture was taken this morning at the Waterloo train station on London. A friend of redditor Raimon86 snapped it on the way to work. Others assure us that the same scene is happening all over Britain, as they commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme.THe battle lasted for months, and over a million soldiers were killed.

The BBC has a roundup of the many commemoration ceremonies taking place today.
