Your tributes

Anthony Norman 

Often think of an old school chum who died on the other side of the world. Someone often thinks of you all these years later. Rest in eternal peace.

William Frederick Forge

Great uncle Will, who was killed on the first day of the Battle of the Somme (1 July 1916) in Mash Valley (Ovillers-La Boiselle) aged 20. He has no grave, but is known unto God and memorialised at Thiepval. My mother kept his memory alive for us, as we have done for the next generation.

Colonel Sandys also deserves a dedication. Col Sandys was Will’s commanding officer. He had tried to warn the generals that the battle would be futile as the previous week’s barrage had not been sufficient to breach the enemy lines. He was correct. He was wounded and returned to England traumatised by the horrors he witnessed. Unable to continue as a CO he took his own life in September 1916, and is buried in Brompton Cemetery. Colonel Sandys is one of the few who spoke truth to power.

All of the fallen soldiers

God bless them all!!

To all soldiers who fought

Wars should never ever happen. We should never be put into a position taking the lives of another human being.
But there are times when awful, evil acts are committed. It’s in these times that one’s bravery can help to stop those in the act of evil and torture.
There are not enough words to know how brave you were and the resilience showed to help defeat those who were in the midst of committing these barbaric crimes.
I cannot imagine the things that were experienced and witnessed but I can pay my personal commendation to each and everyone person across the four alliances.
Evil was defeated through the bravery, strength and union of working together. Lest we forget.
