Thinking about the film the Darkest Hour I wondered how it would effect those of us who are not British born . I am too young to remember the war but had a close relation who was a prisoner of war for 5 years . He did not let this experience cloud the rest of his life but he must have had bad memories . My parents spoke about their wartime experience and my mother's cousin died a horrid death on the Burmah railway .This time was often referred to in my childhood and I am adament that remberance day should continue .
My DDIL is not British and I have been taken aback when her relations talk about " during the war " . I think that they are too young to remember then realise it is thier countrie's war not WW2 they are referring to .
Anyone with views on this subject ?
