I think we can all empathise with that sentiment. There's so much now that simply wasn't available or possible to share so easily. My parents really didn't talk much about the War and when they did it was often disparaging their efforts, Dad "was being taught to drive and hit the only tree in the desert" type of thing. Don't beat yourself up, be happy that you have found out for that would have made her grateful. I'm pleased that the Pals here can do so much for people and have the skills to know where to find these details. I'm often surprised just how much comes from an enquiry!
