Zone visitors on their way to a 5-minute silence ceremony for the Armistice’s centennial to pay respects to British, Commonwealth and Allied fallen in the world wars. They are sat in a deep-level 1940 air-raid shelter, the very tunnels where the great grandmother of one of those individuals pictured would have retreated to during the Blitz, over 100ft underground. Unfortunately this Zone has been neutered as such, and turned into a tourist attraction for the masses who I fear may not exhibit satisfactory respect for the wartime historical context it oozes.
