I visited my Great great Uncles grave at Spoilbank cemetary today. Such an emotional experience, I am lost for words. He received his papers at 19 and died at 22. Like so many he lost his life at such a young age for the sake of others.
It wasn't what I expected at all, there are so many cemetaries scattered amongst the fields. it's such a thought provoking place. Seeing row upon row of the graves of such young people who lost their lives for us was such a very, very sad sight to see.
I feel honoured to do running the Fallen Oak Leaf Project I just hope I can show in a small way my apprecation to them.
