  • I didn't know you or you me, I was born long after you went off to war. I look at your portrait on the wall you were so young and handsome in your uniform. I think of your bravery you and your mates and to think your mate Arthur Midwood has just past last month (March 2015) he was with you when you were killed.. You never got to be an old man like him but your will always be my handsome uncle - you were my father's older brother.
