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 fiancés 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.
