I, like all of you feel a great sadness on Remembrance/Rememberers Sunday. I have been listening to many stories on the radio this morning of so many young men who lost their lives in World War 1. My father served in the 2nd World War but always played his part in it down and didn’t tell us very much about his experiences. One of our friends Robin was called after his uncle Robin who had been a prisoner of war in the 2nd World War, he had been liberated but on their way home by ship, they were tragically blown up and never saw home again. I always think about him and his comrades and all of the other dear boys who died so long ago.
It is a poignant day to say the least .
Some years ago, we were staying with our two daughters in London and all of us made our way to Whitehall to take part in the Armistice Day service. It was a very special occasion and one that everyone should try to attend if you can.
Such bravery and sadness. As a mother, I cannot imagine how all those mothers and fathers bore the fear and pain during those terrible days of war.
WE WILL REMEMBER.
