Memories of war?

#1
I think it's been really great to see all the coverage of Remembrance Day - I feel like I've learned more than ever. Do you think it's because of the 90 (edit) year anniversary of the end of World War I?

One of the best things I saw this time though was a site called remembering war: your memories http://www.wellcomecollection.org/rememberingwar by the museum Wellcome Collection. Looks like they're collecting people's memories of war - and then a psychologist is going to analyse them to say how society remembers conflict. Wonder what the doc will tell us?

Sounds like a terrible idea!

It does to me too , unless Arrse's resident head mechanics can suggest why it is or isn't?

To me, it doesn't seem more than a wild stab at someones' thoughts at the time of writing rather than their continued state of mind?

Any analysis is flawed on that basis alone surely? Can it ever be more than conjecture?

I was thinking along the lines of how society PERCIEVE conflict. Only those involved could REMEMBER
