Think…

As a thought, when you have found a button, & it appears to show three cannons, can you imagine the noise these cannons must have made, and if there was a dozen of these artillery cannons lined up & scattering the french to oblivion, the noise must have been so loud, & by serving your country as an artillery man, & using these huge cannons, must have had an effect of those that survived in later life, with either deafness, tinnitus or some other related problem, imagine doing that today without ear defenders, or gloves to protect your hands from the hot metal… just imagine what happens when you are bogged down in the mud, the smell of cordite and the panic of the horses, it all adds to the heightened sense of awareness, how fragile your life is, so please think next time you find a military button, what has gone on before, & try to imagine the life, this little button has seen and escaped from, & the man who once polished and looked after this tiny artefact, before the indignity of being lost in the soil, away from the brave man who this button served…
