Death: Nov. 14, 1943, Greece

My Grandad was in the British Army,he was a Private and was in the 1st King's Own Royal Regiment. He served for his Country England in the second world war. He was killed on the island of Leros , his body was never found and is known only to God . He is remembered on a memorial in the Athen's Cemetery, Greece, and also has his name inscribed on the War Memorial of his home town, Helston, Cornwall. My Mum never got to see her Daddy. She loves and misses him oh so much.


In Flanders Field


In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe;
To you from falling hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.

John McRae (1872-1918)
