HEART-WRENCHING STORY

ADDED 3 FEBRUARY 2006

I have just read the memories of Frank Holmes regarding his memories of the First World War as a Sapper in the 62nd Division.

I have been researching my grandfather, James Green from Knottingley, who was also a Sapper in the 62nd Division (480641) Frank's memories were fascinating to me because my granddad also received the Military Medal for fighting in France and to read this account of what it was like was heart wrenching to think what they must have gone through. I was in tears by the time I had finished it.

My family have no recollections of my granddad ever talking about what it was like in the war; my Dad said it was something he just never talked about and you knew not to ask.

Thank you so much for having this letter on your website.
