Lovely layout Lorraine, and so good to put it up today too. I am hoping to do some layouts of Ken's Dad who served at Gallipoli, the Somne, Ypres and lived to tell the tale!

This is lovely and very apposite. Is it digital?

Its great that you have this old photo and have been able to preserve it like that, I know next to nothing about my ancestors.

Armistice service is on Tuesday here (a bank holiday), when at 11 oclock we all go up to the war memorial and a speech is read and all the names are read out and the crowd repeats 'mort pour la France' after each name. Then there is the silence, which can be a bit of a slapdash affair in these parts and then everybody goes to the salle de fetes for a 'glass of honour'.

No, not digi, Maria. A clever bit of paper, that's all.

Lovely way for future generations to find out about their relative.

Thats fabulous Lou. For the first time this year I've had specific ancestors to think about who fought in the Wars through doing my family tree, I didn't know my Grandfathers and with it being painful for my Grandma to talk about I didn't get to know the stories when she was alive.
One of my Great Grandfathers died in 1916 in the battle of Jutland when his ship HMS Defence got hit.
