happy Yorkshire Day.

Time to pity them poor buggers who weren’t lucky to be born in God’s Own County.

August 1st holds a special place in Yorkshire’s history for, on this day in 1759, soldiers from Yorkshire regiments who had fought in the battle of Minden, in Germany, picked white roses from bushes near to the battlefields as a tribute to their fallen comrades.
