You can wear your Daddy’s scarf today: Tim Godden

Tim Godden’s emotional illustration

Of all the images shared online to remember those who fell during the two world wars that blighted the 20th century, I found this one deeply moving.

It depicts a familiar scene to all of us. A parent and child getting ready to go to Anfield on match day, only in this one the boy has been robbed of the chance to attend with his father, who in turn has lost all of his tomorrows. The mother has lost a husband.

For me, few images sum up the utter futility and all-pervasive impact of war as much as this one. Thank you Tim.
