Commemoration of The Great War has made many of us turn again to those sepia photos, the campaign medals and to listen again in our minds to those family stories of ‘grandfather’ and his war time hardships.
Not too many grandfathers did talk about their war, and what was said has been diluted by time, the retelling subtly changing what happened.
If you would like to learn about your relative’s time serving king and country then I may be able to help. As a military historian and family researcher I have been privileged to help many families fill a gap in their heritage.
The response from my recent advertisement in Third Age Matters has demonstrated that families do want to know where and when grandfather served and exactly what he went through thereby giving colour to those sepia photographs.
Grandfather fought in The Great War?
Didn’t talk about it?
Let an experienced military family historian discover his experiences for you.
Please contact me by phone or through my website which has full details of how I can help. Thank you.
