My DGS was asking about WW1 this evening which got me thinking that it is exactly 100 years to the month since my grandfather was killed in France aged 27. His memorial is at Thiepval.How I would have liked to have known him and feel robbed that I never knew him.He too was robbed that he never saw his children grow up(one was born after he died) let alone his grandchildren. This was true for so many and when I think what they suffered in the trenches during those harsh winters it makes me really sad but also grateful that my sons have never had to be conscripted.
