Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

I took this picture at the York Castle Museum. It is one of the many displays of paraphernalia from World War I the museum has and they fascinated me. Like I mentioned in this post, I am fascinated by them as they have an uncanny resemblance to the toys we used to play war during my childhood. One of my friends had almost exactly that: a water bottle, a compass, a monocular telescope, a Swiss army knife (because he was a Scout). We played war, often of the guerilla sort, which was quite cathartic. Funny to think how something so grave as war can become the subject of childhood games. Games I remember fondly.
