Let us remember those, whose lives 100 years ago, were made weary, by four long years of war. The act of remembrance serves us well. Respect for our ancestor’s journey may guard us to keep hold of our precious peace. The peace we now enjoy, won by their sacrifice. I am mindful that my parents, lived through two World Wars.
This memorial weekend, I am honouring all, who lived through the Great War and the many who perished. My family’s story of life through WW1, Mizpah Cousins, is free to download from Amazon.
RIP my Grandfather, Emil Heitmann, who died of his injuries, in France, October 1915.
RIP my cousin, Otto Henselück, who served as a British merchant seaman. His ship, the SS Gretaston, was sunk by a German U-Boat April 1917. He served under the name, Robert Smith.
