The Sunday Post – 11th November 2018

This week has been another long one at work, but today of all days feels like it’s really not the time to talk about my petty annoyances so instead I’m going to tell you a little about some people who were all prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Fortunately none of them had to or I wouldn’t be here to tell you about them.

Remembrance Day has been a big part of my life from a very young age, I come from a military family, grew up near a military base, and as a Brownie and a Guide I walked in the parades in my local town.

My father served in the Royal Navy during The Falklands, he wasn’t called up to go to the islands but he was on standby to be on the next shipment out.

My granddad (mum’s dad) joined the Royal Navy during World War II and served in, and came home from, Burma. He never spoke about what he went through over there as a teenager but he was hugely proud to have served during the war and was a standard bearer for the Burma Star during a number of Remembrance Day parades both close to home and in London

Finally is my dad’s granddad who volunteered from Barbados to serve during WWII and was awarded an MBE for his service, I never got the chance to meet him as he passed before I visited Barbados for the first time.

So I’m going to take this moment to thank everyone who has, and continues to be prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice to serve their country.
