Left three small children and fought from 1916. He returned in 1919, only to suffer from Spanish flu. He survived, but died at 64. As a result I never got to know my grandfather. He is always remembered.

They claim you deserted on 05/12/1914, the day you got shot in the face in France. We know you didn't and you died in service to the country you loved. They may not have honoured you; you may have no grave or memorial, but I'll always remember you.
