Winifred earnest and phyllis

This is a day to remember. In the picture on the left is my Grandmother, Winifred Walker. Her father Earnest Perry somehow survived the 1st World War. On the left is her sister Phylis.

My Step Grandfather, Bill Poultney, went to war in 1916, he survived but was one of only 50 out of 1,000 in his original unit that did. My grandfather Leslie Walker was too young for WW1. He was sent to India for 4 years as a medical orderly for WW2.

No matter how you feel about war the carnage is obvious and tragic.
