I had a warm welcome this evening from the Southborough Branch of the Royal British Legion - a very friendly bunch. They had invited me to speak about my book on the Southborough War Memorial, and the ongoing record on which I am working of those who died in the World Wars and since. I explained how I am still collecting material for my website on the stories of the war dead, of those not mentioned on the Memorial, and of those who survived the conflicts but who were irreparably damaged by them. On the way home this evening I was moved to hear the recording of Brian Hanrahan reporting from the Falklands War, and sadly, men and women around the world are still dying daily in armed conflicts. I think it was Albert Einstein who said that one cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war.
Lifelong bookworm, love writing too. Have been a theatrical agent and reflexologist among other things, attitude to life summed up by Walt Whitman's MIRACLES.
