Were these fighting men relatives of yours, Helen? You must be very proud of them if so.

Horace was my great uncle and John and Robert were my uncles. All very brave men and I am proud of them. They and all the others who died or fought in these conflicts to protect their countries (and all those conflicts before and since) have my admiration.
