That’s what gets me. How those like your Mrs Grandad never spoke of it. God knows what he must have been going through emotionally on his own.

God bless him and everyone else who fought in both world wars.


I cannot imagine either, he lived to 85, was a heavy whiskey drinker most nights but never seemed drunk, almost as if it was just medicinal, just enough to sleep and blank out the memories. The highlanders honoured him at his funeral in 2006 all those years since the war ended. We dint know we are born really do we? The stuff they all went thru and we moan about the weather, traffic and the like....🤷🏼‍♂️

Not forgotten.

An idea isn't responsible for those who believe in it.

14 million deaths in The Great War.

Whilst watching the footage of two Police Officers being attacked in London yesterday, I did wonder how the young of today would fare if faced with the challenges of 1914.

The truth is most of them wouldn't fare very well at all. The Old Contemptibles and later Kitchener's army would have failed miserably if made up from today's youngsters.
