11/11 Lest we forget


                                  They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
                          Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
                          At the going down of the sun and in the morning
                          We will remember them.

                           Laurence Binyan, For the Fallen                                                                                                        

 Sergeant Thomas William Saunders 1895 - 1917

My Great Uncle


  1. A lovely tribute.

  2. Thank you, Tilly. He was just a year older than my boy. It doesn't bear thinking about, does it?

  3. This was lovely, and sad. My maiden name is Sanders and I sometimes wonder if a distant relative changed it from Saunders after crossing the pond. I should delve into this.


please leave a comment or just say hello, I'd love to hear from you!
