Today is Remembrance Sunday in the UK. It’s always the second Sunday in November and is the day when we reflect on the courage and sacrifices made by our servicemen. One of the most moving experiences I’ve had while travelling was visiting Gallipoli, where thousands lost their lives. My photo shows a statue of a Turkish soldier carrying a wounded allied captain to safety on Pine Ridge, a true incident. I think it shows a compassionate connection between the two.
