I began keeping track of people in my family who have served in the wars a few years ago – and make a chart for Remembrance Day. I include pictures as I believe this makes them real to me and others. Each year it grows as I come across more people. This past year I had found enough to make a chart of deaths in each World War. I also have charts of those who served but thankfully came home.
This is my way of honouring those who served but underlining how many from our family paid the ultimate sacrifice. How do we honour their sacrifice? How do we remember them?
