The idea behind the “Unknown Soldier” is not a unique one, rather it can be found in many nations that haave lost vast numbers of soldiers and civilians in war. The Tomb in Westminster Abbey is yet one of the many examples of this memorial to the many who were lost in our great folly called war. The Abbey is a breathtaking building in itself, but this small spot just makes it so much more sombre. Google Earth co-ordinates are: 51.499468° -0.128368°
The body of the Unknown Warrior arrived at Platform 8 on Victoria Station, where it remained overnight.
