Haig poppies


‘Haig’ streets with Country remembrances

Field Marshall Haig’s name had disappeared from the remembrance poppy by the end of the 20th century.  When Australian’s remember the thousands of ‘fallen’, we need to remember that Haig was personally responsible for so many of their deaths.  

The above map is my way of using Haig’s name to remember names of Nations whose people died fighting for their Countries.  (Each Nation can be identified by hovering or clicking on the dots in the maps which are accessed through the links.)  Such memorials in Australia are not easy to find and often need to be actively sought out.  This is an active line of inquiry for me, so corrections and additional references are welcome.
