"The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime"

I've been reading a mystery series written about a Scotland Yard detective who came home from WWI. It's by Charles Todd, which is a mother-son team, and in the early books there is quite a bit of flashback to the Somme trenches. I've read others, such as Anne Perry's books of that time, as well. I can easily see how people would have felt that way. What a lovely picture to express the feeling.
