At the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918, the First World War came to end. This is the day we remember all those who fought..and who died so we can enjoy the freedom we have now.
My Dad did his duty as a fireman in the RAF.
My brother served in Northern Ireland and Iraq with the RAF.
My great uncle paid the ultimate price
Battery Sergeant Major Edwin Hampson..Royal Artillery (24th Siege Bty.)
was killed 14 April 1917 aged 42
His final resting place is in Achiet-le-Grand Communal Cemetery Extension,
Pas de Calais, France
His name is engraved on the Remembrance Wall
in St Marys Church, in the village where my family lives
His name on his parents gravestone is now faded
But the gratitude for his service and sacrifice will never diminish
Love and Eternal Gratitude
