THE MENIN GATE - Remembrance Day Remembered

entry picture

My uncle, Ernest Valentine Venner, Lieutenant: The Rifle Brigade, has a grave that is marked, but many 

who served and died do not, and these lines from 2014...the 100th anniversary of the start of WW1...are intended to mark and maintain their memory.

Thanks for the comments. The gratitude for their sacrifice
can never be over-emphasised. Every time I witness the
tendency to moan and groan - ironically more prevalent
now when folk enjoy a life far beyond the reality of that
which these here remembered knew - I take a moment to
think of them and what they were never to have and to hold.
