Lest we forget...

That's what my Dad used to say to us. Lest we forget. Never forget.

My Grandfather and Father were both in the army over here. My Grandfather was in the Battle of the Somme. He got shot in the hip and was evacuated back home. He was one of the lucky ones. Dad, fortunately, never saw action. He was in the army during peacetime.

But we should never forget all those who were called up or joined up and fought and gave and their lives for us and weren't as lucky.

We must never forget, not just today, on Remembrance Sunday, but everyday.
