thank you for sharing this. I am a journalist and working on a series of articles for our local newspaper about the various wars and local people. It always amazes me when I'm interviewing people on what they've gone through. Recalling and honouring our history is very important, for sure.

I must consider my parents fortunate as mum was often able to live near Dad as he was not posted overseas until the very end.
A treasure indeed.

How strong and wonderful woman she was, staying alone with 5 children for four long years of wartime, raising them with no father/husband at home.
