The verse that is read out on 'Armistice Day' (11/11 @ the 11th hour) is from the poem "For the Fallen" by Lawrence Binyon:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

My Grandfather, John Carney, fought in WW1, he was fortunate and came home but died in 1925 which was I am sure aggravated by his war service.

It was very sad to learn that it is believed that the first British soldier to die in World War one was Private John Parr a brave man of 17 years of age.

Unfortunately I still think that my theory that some wars are engineered as a form of population control.

I've thought along similar lines for a long time ,remember the 2 experimental atomic bombs on japan.I think america was testing them to see how good they worked,one terrible risk.

One of the cities the Yaks bombed was the wrong one, they misidentified it. so thousands of the wrong people died. If any other nation had done that it would have been a war crime.
