TAKE A WORD


Our word for inspiration this week at Take a Word is POPPY which took my train of thought down the route of remembrance and so here is a tribute to Maurice my great uncle who died during the second world war.  He married his sweetheart prior to returning to his regiment for what would be the last time.  So he left a wife and a son he never met.

Thank you for looking.
