VE DAY + 75 YEARS

Although I have not researched the men who died during World War Two and who are listed on Old Whittington War Memorial on Church Street, I thought it would be timely to remember the 25 on this page today. Sadly I am unable to add the dates or where the men died at the moment.

I found this poem trawling through the internet and although it was written in commemoration of the 1st Iraq War I thought the sentiment was quite fitting for any war.
