Truly heroic stuff isn't it
Bill Phillips: I think it is Chris. I really cannot imagine the courage of the soldiers in WW1 and I don't mean just ours

A fine tribute to the heroes. I bet these two have a few memories.
Bill Phillips: The chap on the left looked very thoughtful and I thought he reflected the occasion for me
There are no doubt so many individual battles making up the whole that one can read about, this one seems to have worked out right for us and your photo adds to the mood of this post. (BTW did you mean to call Ray Ayush today!!)
Bill Phillips: This one was more significant than i had ever realised Brian

Oh so I did!!
