Mum and Dad went through the hell of WWII. Mum being bombed regularly in South London and Dad being chased around in South East Asia to defend all free people from oppression by those with evil intentions. It still goes on and we can only hope that our future will continue to see those who are prepared to risk all in order to make this place a little safer for the rest of us.

My Gramps was in the War, not on the front line but to repair and maintain the plains, so for me it is not only recognizing the fallen and the survivors but for the men and women who where standing behind them, those who in some way big or small played a part in the lives of the brave fighters who stood up for what they believed in and done and saw things that scared their minds for rest of their lives, no-one truly knows what they done or saw, its just the stories that we get told, the...

My Gramps was in the War, not on the front line but to repair and maintain the plains, so for me it is not only recognizing the fallen and the survivors but for the men and women who where standing behind them, those who in some way big or small played a part in the lives of the brave fighters who stood up for what they believed in and done and saw things that scared their minds for rest of their lives, no-one truly knows what they done or saw, its just the stories that we get told, the older generation do not get the respect that they deserve, not by a long shot, but yet the youngsters wonder why that "little old lady" poked their walking stick at them,,,,, take a look, I say, and see what they done and what has become of our world today, does anyone honestly think they would still stand proud after all that's happened to our country, after they fought so hard for it,,,,, I don't think so some how,,,,,, God rest to all those who sadly fell but THANK YOU for all your hard work and dedication some of us still appreciate what you had to do and my hat goes off to each an every one of you, xx.

I totally hate war and all it stands for but the bravery and loyalty of every soldier living or dead has to be admired and honoured.
