Incidentally the centenary of the Battle of the Somme came up just after the Brexit vote. The Somme where a million men, mostly British German and French, got killed in 3 months is a horrible reminder of what can happen when Europe is divided. Let's work to see it never happens again.
My father was wounded on the Somme and wrote about it. I have put the complete chapter on the Njeanius website. Just click on the link at http://www.njeanius.uk/
