1914 – 2014

Today is Remembrance Day – the day when we remember those who lost their lives in past and current wars.

It’s now one hundred years ago that a generation of young men was wiped out in WW1.

When I was young it was very common for people to have several maiden aunts, the young women whose fianc├ęs didn’t come back and who never got married. There just weren’t enough young men to go around. They were lying under gravestones in France and other places.
