Sure enough!..And after early 1916 there was'nt even a Choice.
We lost both Great Grandfathers and one Great Uncle in the first.But faired a bit better in 2nd,although not all wounds are clearly visible.
I must say the tribute in the Moat at the Tower of London,with a Ceramic Poppy to represent each and every British and Commonwealth Casualty is immensely powerful and very poignant!
