Remembering

They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old.
Age will not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
we will remember them.

I look with pride at my men, Alan, my husband, who spent 24 years serving in the Royal Navy and Simon, my eldest son, who spent 4 years serving in the Royal Logistics corps of the British
Army. Both lived through conflicts and wars and thankfully returned safely home to be with their families. There are many who are not so lucky.

For their sakes we must remember.

  1. my father was a Royal Marine Commando. He never received councelling for " post traumatic stress " they didn't in those days and the things he experienced affected him.

    He was a military man through & through - even ran away from where he was evacuated, faked his age and " joined up " !!!

    He died several years ago but on November 11th ironically.

Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
