Grace's Letter WWII scrapbook page's...

These two pages were inspired by Hobby Art the stamps used are a mix of the Commemorative set and Remembrance set. the idea came from a letter home so Graces letter from her husband serving in France, has been taken from an actual letter and copied and altered a little. The Poem used is a great favourite of mine DULCE ET DECORUM EST .....By Wilfred Owen. The last few lines go.

My friend you would not tell with such high zest.
To children ardent for some desperate glory
The old lie Ducle et decorum est
Pro patria mori.

Which mean's it is a brave and wonderful thing to die for your country.

The 3 chaps paddling were indeed two brothers and a brother in law that met near the Loir and went for a paddle to wash the endless mud off....None returned. The debt we owe and the gratitude I personally feel, to not just these but other fallen hero's is beyond measure. Indeed on this D day anniversary.
