hi great great great uncle. it is me Jane. i wasn't born when you went to war but i always remember you and imagine you coming back home. you fighting. you were the first person to die in ww1. why? why did you enlist it was too dangerous. it wasn't an adventure at all. we should all blame that very arrogant person Winston churchill. he is the badest person in the world. anyways. i'm married now and you have two great great great great nieces now. i wish you were still alive.
