When you go home, tell them of us and say, for their tomorrow, we gave our today.

  1. He summed it all up brilliantly with that quote. Bx

  2. I agree. It always pulls at the heartstrings when I think of the huge sacrifice these men and women gave. To think that many of them were little more than teenagers too.

  3. Thank you for these two posts, Marie. I think this is a very important time of year because every family in the UK was touched by the Great War as well as many families from other countries, including Canada. Both my grandfathers, my great-grandfather and my husband's grandfathers and father served in armed conflict and we are thankful that they all came home, but a young man who grew up in the house we live in now went off to fight in the Great War and never came home. I remember them all on this day every year. x

    1. I feel that it is so important that we remember their sacrifice. Marie x
