The flags of the Allies are a striking feature of the memorial, each flag being presented by the government of the country. The French flag being presented on Tuesday by M. le Compte S. Fleory and in the close of a speech, he said the victims of the war wished that the union made firm during the war, should not crumble in the first days of peace. If we wish one day to know the true peace, we should not separate, and the wishes of the dead will be granted. The Lincolnshire Star, March 7th 1925
