    Tomorrow is always a humbling day for me when so many brave men and women lost there’s lives
    In the fight for freedom and this year being the centenary of the ending of WW1

    The U.K. and the commonwealth countries always call it armistice day or Remembrance Sunday
    And in the US you call it Veterans Day

    Over the years I have been to the four corners of mainland Europe hauling freight
    And seeing all the war cemeteries in France and Belgium on my travels it was unbelievable
    So humbling Our family has two ancestors buried in France

    Would Like to hear everyone’s views about tomorrow

    Those men were a hard bunch living and dying in the trenches.

    My father served in peace time, gramps was in WW2 and Great Grandfather fought in the Boer War and Great War. I was raised to have the utmost respect for the sacrifices our elders have made.

    Maternal Grandfather killed when Mother was new,





    Çcvvvcccçborn, he never saw her. I'm named after him. Dad took Mom to visit his grave in Luxembourg before she passed away. KIA leaving young bride and baby sucks. Cancer sucks.
