Cats BS: Remembrance Day (57* d) RE: BS: Remembrance Day 13 Nov 11


Don't forget the members of the Society of Friends [Quakers] Ambulance Service who went into No Mans Land every hour, unarmed and under fire, to bring back the wounded and the dying,[My Great Grandfather] and those who were in Reserved Occupations like the fire service [my father and his 3 brothers] and, of course, the Bevin Boys.
In WWII my father and his 3 brothers rescued all the children when a bomb dropped on Lingfield School. The headteacher was awarded the George Cross and the 4 men were sent white feathers as a sign of cowardice. My father kept those in the enevelope in which they were sent until the day he died. They were not cowards, they were heroes.
