Remembrance


Two of my great-uncles served in the First World War. We were fortunate -- they both came back, alive and uninjured. Great-uncle Henry was a bit of an amateur photographer, too, and we have his photo album. Thought you might like to see a bit of it.

For everyone who has served ... thank you.

What BCR isn't telling you is the History hidden in the photos (a story that is hers to tell) and... Uncle Henry got to play with Lewis Guns! Wheeeeeeee!

My grandpa was in the Army in WWI, but I don't know what unit he served in. I've only seen one picture of him in uniform, was too young when he died (I was 7) to ever talk with him about it.

These are fabulous pictures. What a delight he took so many and that you still have them around!
