British First World War Executions During the First World War, the British army executed more than 300 of its own soldiers who were convicted of cowardice. Many of these troops had suffered mental breakdowns because of the horrors of trench warfare. A movement is now afoot to have them posthumously pardoned.

This Is My Country Soldier Blue I remember seeing this movie and leaving the theatre with this song well and truly stuck in my head. Not very often do I wait on the end titles, but had to see who'd sung this song. Buffy Sainte Marie was her name and WOW ! what a voice. I'll leave the trivia to you all, as I just love the song. The movie also left me with conflicting feelings.

1915 Scottish Railroad Disaster The worst railroad disaster in history occurred on May 22, 1915 near Gretna Green, Dumfriesshire, Scotland. It is commonly known as the Quintinshill Disaster, having been named for the location of a nearby intermediate signal box with passing loops on each side on the Caledonian Railway Main Line linking Glasgow and Carlisle. The crash, which involved five trains, killed a probable 226 people and injured 246 others. Those killed were mainly territorial soldiers from the Royal Scots heading for the Gallipoli front in the First World War. The precise number of dead was never established with certainty as the roll list of the regiment was destroyed by the fire. The crash occurred when a troop train travelling from Larbert, Stirlingshire to Liverpool, Lancashire collided with a local passenger train that had been shunted on to the main line, to then be hit by an express train to Glasgow which crashed into the wreckage a minute later. Gas from the lighting system of the old wooden carriages of the troop train ignited, starting a fire which soon engulfed the three passenger trains and also two goods trains standing on nearby passing loops. A number of bodies were never recovered, having been wholly consumed by the fire. The bodies that were recovered were buried together in a mass grave in Edinburgh's Rosebank Cemetery. Such was the scope of the disaster that many of the rescuers wrongly assumed the trains had been targets of German saboteurs. Four bodies, believed to be of children, were never identified or claimed and are buried in the Western Necropolis, Glasgow. The cause of the accident was poor working practices on the part of the two signalmen involved. It was discovered that the two men often colluded to falsify their records of when they relieved each other, routinely did not follow regulations properly, and engaged in other unsafe practices. The results of the official inquiry into the disaster led to their imprisonment for culpable homicide after legal proceedings in both Scotland and England. A memorial to the dead soldiers was erected soon after the accident. There are a number of more recent memorials at various locations. An annual remembrance service is held at Rosebank Cemetery.

Paths of Glory Trailer Here is the original theatrical trailer from the First World War flick Paths of Glory (1957). Directed by Stanley Kubrick, it tells the story of inhuman French generals ordering a suicidal attack on an impregnable German position. When the attack fails, for the sake of morale and discipline, three soldiers are chosen to be executed for cowardice. One is selected randomly, another is chosen because he is 'socially undesirable,' and the third is chosen because the general has a personal issue with him. Kirk Douglas gives a great performance as regimental commander Colonel Dax who tries to stop the insanity. This film was banned in France until 1975. (It was also banned in Germany, where it was filmed, because the German government did not want to harm its diplomatic relations with France.)

Audie Murphy Life Cover Here is the very definition of an American hero: Audie Murphy, the most decorated American soldier of the Second World War. He was under age and undersized, but his battlefield exploits are almost beyond belief. Murphy was awarded 33 American military medals (including the Congressional Medal of Honor), five French military medals and one Belgian military medal. He was killed in a private plane accident in 1971. According to some sources, his grave at Arlington National Cemetery is the second-most visited, second only to John F. Kennedy's.
