  • Uncle James, You were my Grandmother's cousin. She was a strong lady and I guess it's a family trait, as you gave so much for all. I tried to come and see you in 2015 but unfortunately couldn't get down to you when I was there, but I will! You won't be forgotten!

  • For Jim The guns are silent now The waves of blood ebbed away Where arrows of fire once rained upon human flesh And death held you tightly to her chest In triumph! Somewhere out there amongst the daisies lie Your bones amongst the men who died Rest peacefully now. What was is for? Paula McTaggart 22 April 2015
