Thanks for posting these. It is important to remember. There are no Great War veterans now, but I guess there are quite a few of us of an age where we knew many from WWII or had fathers who served in that conflict. I knew many of Dad's friends and I am writing a book about their exploits at the moment. I have just come back from the memorial service in Brisbane where someone asked me who I knew among the old soldiers.

In the US, we remember our veterans live or dead on Veterans Day. For myself, and I'm sorry I have no photos of these people I wish to thank:
My father, World War 1
My Husband Korea
My brother Vietnam
My brother in law (recently deceased) 33 year retired Marine veteran, did two tours in Vietnam.

Thank you for your service, risking your life to keep me free.

The photo of James Kerrison my Grand Father was taken in Australia when he was serving in the Royal Navy ( Days of Wind) As a Killick then. It was is a hand coloured black & white and survived the trip home to England , a fire there and eventually to Port Arthur ( now Thunder Bay) . The colour is still good and it is an Oval Shape (16 " high)mounted in an Oval Frame ( I dont know if it is original - the frame). He was 13 years old when he joined the Navy on the Island of St Helena where he was born(where Napoleon was incarcerated & interred) and honorably discharged at 36 (23 Year Career in the Navy). Had more careers after including a London Bobby on the East India Dock section of London. A book could be written on him alone. God Bless all Who serve in the defense of our Freedom
Regards Bruce

My father lied about his age when he joined the army and went to war. This is also the day of Remembrance 100 years ago when World War 1 ended in 1918

Every year, while piping for school assemblies, this is played, excuse me for sharing a Canadian specific song:
