If my grandfather were in this list you would not be reading this. He was one of the rare ones who saw the Armistice in 1918, despite spending almost all of the previous 4 years in the slaughter of northern France. The friends he started the war with in his Pals Batallion were almost all either blown to pieces, or buried, or stretchered home to start a new life as a cripple. He was wounded and gassed, went over the top several times, and his medals for bravery are now in my safekeeping. He would never tell me anything about it.
