Battle of the Somme centenary honored by the mark of the Queen at Westminister Abbey

As a respect memory of soldiers of the First World War, the Queen attended a service at Westminister Abbey on Thursday evening. The service was in behalf of the brave soldiers who were sent to the Battle of the Somme in the First World War. Her Majesty spread a bunch of roses on the grave of the Unknown Warrior inside the ancient abbey in London.

The event started at night. An honour guard of soldiers and civilians held an overnight vigil at the grave. The event ended up before 7:30 AM, the specific time when the British troops were sent into the battle on July, 1916

this event was special to all Brirish people becuase it represents the hard times that British warriors fought ferociously to bring victory to their kingdom. It was intended to be a decisive victory for the British and French against Germany’s forces but by the end of the four-month campaign in northern France, more than a million soldiers had been killed and wounded on both sides and the First World War would drag on for another two years.
