It was a poignant moment for me to read in the memoriam column in the Star of a young man of 18 who died 100 years ago whilst fighting for his country in world war one.
Generations of nephews and nieces had been told of the bravery of their uncle George and his memory had been kept alive within the family.
My own father died in 1932 as a result of his war wounds and I had uncles who were either gassed or wounded.
Thousands of young men were killed or wounded in both wars.
We will remember them.
