Ypres - (Soundtrack to an imaginary film)

Ypres - (Soundtrack to an imaginary film)

My Granddad was in the trenches at Ypres during the first world war. I never got to talk to him about it. He survived and lived until he was 86.
I have often wished I could have made a film about it. So I did. In my head. Its cheaper that way.
Here is the Soundtrack.
Hopefully catching some of the bleakness, the horror, the pointless loss of life and suffering. In the midst of it all, a sewing machine salesman from Suffolk in the middle of a field in Belgium.
To think, just two generations, and it could have been me, or any of us.
Music includes tracks from Han Zimmer, Tyler Bates, Steve Jablonsky, June Tabor, Martin Simpson, Lisa Gerrard, Denez Prigent, The Royal Scots Guards, The US Military Glee Club and Joseph Kilna McKenzie
