Brave men .. I hope your brother is still here.
I only have a few stories from my grandfather about the western front, he wouldn't like to talk about it and certainly sends a chill through me the small bits he did tell. The only thing I remember well was him saying 'don't ever ever go away to war..'

Yes - all the freedoms I enjoy (including this hobby) are because of the sacrifices of generations of brave men and women who have gone and fought for them. Thank You!
