Poignant Moment WWI Soldiers Are Spotted On Daily Commutes
Did you see any of them on your way to work?
Whether you're in London, Bristol, Wiltshire or Newcastle, you may have spotted a battalion of WWI soldiers at the train station on your commutes to work.
Up and down the country, young men in military uniforms are handing out business cards with the names of those who died in the Battle of the Somme, 100 years ago today.
One card read: 'Private William George Dean, 1st/2nd Battalion London Regiment (Royal Fusiliers), Died at the Somme on 1st July 1916. #wearehere'
The soldiers don't speak to commuters but instead hand them the business card.
The soldiers were also pictured riding public transport.
One elderly woman found the experience emotional and was photographed wiping away a tear.

Today marks 100 years since the the Battle of the Somme, where thousands of British and French soldiers, some of which were highly unskilled, were killed on the battlefield during the First World War. 19,240 soldiers died on the first day.
The battle lasted 141 days and finally ended on 18th November 1916, where only 20 miles of land was won at that time.
