My granddad fought in WWll and was stationed in the Middle East, he was sent home with Malaria, I’m sure he wouldn’t have been happy about it. I believe he put his age down to enable him to go…and Mum tells me that he didn’t really like to talk about his time there, not that we can imagine the atrocities these men and boys went through.
Unfortunately i never met Granddad…something i regret immensely. However i feel incredibly close to him and find the Anzac Day memorials is my day to remember him. So it is to him and all of our fallen heroes and our currently serving men and woman that my thoughts go out today.
May one day we find peace.
