Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear, this one you'll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Takin' this one to the grave
If I show you, then I know you
Won't tell what I said
'Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead

For the Digitalmania (Yesterday) challenge.
Leonard, born 1900 (my grandfather) who lied about his age to join up in the first world war. He was shot and wounded and convalesced in a seaside town on the west coast and there he met his future wife ... my grandmother.
He went on to fight in the second world war and was stationed in Iceland when he heard his wife (my grandmother) had died! My mum was 14 at the time.
My mother tells me he was thought to have been lost trying to get back from France to England but one day she saw him walking down the road. He'd come up at Ypres and was then able to hitch lifts to get home!
