Welcome to The Path of the Remembered,

A crowd-sourced tribute to thousands of people connected to the Battle of the Somme

Lucy Newton for Major Lawrence Johnston

Dedicated to Major Lawrence Johnston

by Lucy Newton

Organisation: National Trust

Creator of Hidcote Garden Major Lawrence Johnston was a Commanding Officer at Ypres and the Somme. Here is his signature overlaid onto a contemporary image of the Red Border, one of the most iconic areas of Hidcote Garden. I wanted to use his handwriting because, overlaid on a garden image, it represents the hands that designed and formed the garden.
