Armistice Day

The day we remember those who gave their lives for our country in the 2 great wars.

 

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

 
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. 


At the going down of the sun and in the morning 


We will remember them."

 

 

My grandmother Fermor lost her brother

Private John Taylor, London Regiment in Arras France 7th May 1917 age 20.

 

My grandma Simmons lost her 3rd cousin Thomas Frank Pratt at the same battle field 3 May 1917 age 20.

 

Also my father lost his cousin Ronald French 8/6/1941 age 25. He was leading telegraphist on HMS Hereward which was sunk by enemy action near Rhodes and he died as a prisoner in Rhodes. 

 

"When You Go Home,

Tell Them Of Us And Say,

For Their Tomorrow,

We Gave Our Today"
