As we don´t have an Armistice Day in Denmark, your poppies mainly remind me of some fine British crime novels. There is a Lord Peter Wimsey story (The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club), and the first of Andrew Taylor´s Lydmouth mysteries (An Air that Kills).

Dorte, you were neutral in World War I so probably that is the reason for no Armistice Day?

Yes, of course, but we could have had something corresponding to it. It is not until this year we have had a national remembrance day for soldiers dying in Afghanistan and Iraq. Most Danes seem to ignore or forget that we are in fact a war-faring nation so soldiers who return home, wounded or traumatized, must feel alienated indeed.
