Blogging Up The Works

Come this day annually I tend to remember my maternal grandfather who was wounded on The Somme and lived till 1965 with a metal plate in his head following a shrapnel wound and breathing difficulties after a mustard gas attack.

A relative I tend to overlook is my Great Uncle Sam on my fathers side, who didn't make it.

Thanks to The Commonwealth War Graves Commission he, and many thousand others, are resting and remembered.

And for those who don't normally read Diamond Geezer, todays post is particularly fine.
