Remembrance 2014

Today marks the 96th anniversary of the end of the First World War - and this year of course is the 100th anniversary of its start.

Of course, those in the trenches on that day in November 1914 had no idea that it would end four years later - I'd imagine it was clear that it was certainly not going to be done by Christmas. Many of them, young-ish men just like many of my readers would not be going home; they'd remain in a corner of a foreign field that is forever Britain.

We will remember them.
