    In Loving Memory of all service men and women, from UK and abroad, who fought and died for our country in all conflicts around the world and who died to keep me safe and free. I thank you.............

    In memory of my Mum's father, gassed in WW1 and died a young man as a result of damage to his lungs. I never met him and he left a widow - my gran - with 2 small children to bring up - A Seaforth Highlander

    In memory of my Dads father, I remember a very frail old man who died when I was 5, shot on the Somme but lived to tell the tale and served in dads Army in WW2 - A proud East Kent Buffs soldier

    To my parents - who met serving in the RAF and WAAF's - to my mum no longer here - and to everyone who put their lives on the line to protect their country, our freedom, our democracy, Thank you seems so very inadequate.
