Todays post is a thought of mine that I wish to share with you.
“On the 11/11/2014 we look at our world 100 years after the start of The First World War. A war described as “The War to End Wars”. How wrong we were. In 1939 the Second World War started and ended in 1945.
Today we have conflict all around us within many countries throughout the world. Let us not forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us to have our “tomorrows” today.
Do we all need to stop and think be fore we act in this way?”
The grave stone is from a local church yard, St Andrews, Much Hadham, Herts, UK. The watch is my fathers’ foster fathers watch which saw service in the World War “I” and no longer works, so time has stood still. The field is from a “corner” which is forever England – Norfolk.
John Maxwell Edmunds is credited with the following words, an epitaph in the Kohima Allied war cemetery.
- “When you go home, tell them of us and say
- For their tomorrow, we gave our today.”

For those who gave “Their Today for Our Tomorrow” let us not forget them in future years as their numbers decline year by year.
