    Graham , above, wrote "Great thread."
    Yes, but only as far as it reminds us what a ridiculous and cruel waste of harmless lives war is. On all sides.
    4 in my family served - my Dad and 3 aunts. TG all survived (physically.)

    Far from being a record, but there's a fair service within this lot ... (Edgar Salmon was KIA just over a year after this article was published and is commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial)... Joseph was my Gt.Grandad.
