Let’s never forget.
Jo agreed, and I hope not! xx
Hear, hear. Both grandfathers fought in, and survived (just) the first World War: one at Gallipolli, the other wounded in France. Brother flew in the Falklands War and Gulf War. Very emotive symbol for all our family. RIP boys who didn’t come back and thanks to those who fought for their country. xx
Caro your family obviously have some proud, albeit sad, memories. xx
A beautiful and poignant post Flighty. I think of my Dad and what he endured in World War II. He was lucky to survive but of course did not come home unscathed. He told of many horrors that he witnessed and I’m sure many more were never told.
Doris thanks. Many never said much, if anything, of what they saw such were the horrors. It’s beyond our comprehension isn’t it. xx
We wear both Red and White poppies.
Two Uncles – conscientious objectors, who where at the front all through WW1 as stretcher bearers. No leave or respite for them.
Rest of family both WW1 and WW11 RAF, Navy (both sorts), reserved occupations – all came through unscathed except for memories.
Mrs K good for you! They must have been truly brave men.
They were lucky physically, but the mental anguish they all undoubtedly suffered is so often forgotten or overlooked. xx
