In honor of Remembrance Day, I would like to link back to last years blog about my Uncle Charlie – WW1 Vet – a post wherein I was able to trace his path across Europe during the last Hundred Days Offensive of the war, based on his war memorabilia. I have had many positive comments on this post, and it seems particularly fitting during this, the 100th year anniversary of the signing of the Armistice.
For those who might have already read the above, I am working on a post about a WW2 Bomber Tour and Swing Dance I attended last year. Check it out next week. In WW1 we may have sent horses to war, but in WW2 we sent 18 year olds up in tin-cans. I was horrified when I saw what they had flown in….it’s no wonder so many did not return. Lest we forget.
