    Some very poignant stories today on an Antiques Roadshow WW1 special. Even the presenters were becoming quite emotional. Made me take a look at some of my WW1 casualty medals and think what stories lay behind them all.

    Lest We Forget. :poppy:

    Thanks Leslie. Glad this can be seen again by others. I followed up on the King's Liverpool Lieutenant Gordon Thorpe MC. His father went over to find his grave after the war, which the German soldiers had named Ein Officer und drei soldaten. As you can see below, the CWGC concentration document fully bares out what was mentioned tonight.
