I do like your “on this day” blog! It paints such a vivid picture of the ebb and flow of war.
Thank you Hannah – cheers Mike
John Robert De Roche was my great uncle
Thankfully his brother Charles Thomas my grandad
survived the war
I visited uncle John’s grave with my family to pay our respect and it was a very humbling experience
Morning Paul – so glad that you were able to visit his grave and yes it is very humbling, thanks Mike
