I always think about those lost lives. I was on Iwo Jima and thousands lost their lives there and now, those men who died for their country, finds those countries best friends. Isn't that odd?

"Here lie some of the flowers of British youth."

The Great War saw these young men go off and never return to their families. May we never forget them and the sacrifices that they made.

Well done, Rose, for listing these people. Very thoughtful. I'm off to Tewkesbury's parade tomorrow to report on that. It's important we all do our bit to remember what they did for us.
