In memory of all our grandparents who served in WW1 and beyond this piece is called 'For King and Country'.
My maternal Grandfather (surname KIng) who was a policeman and killed on duty in Norwich Blitz (he remains a ‘shadowy’ figure in my life as I have no photographs of him.
My fraternal Grandfather (Holmes) who like many others, lied about his age and joined the ‘Ber Street Boys’. Injured twice and gassed
The Cunninghams (my Romany Grandmother's siblings and uncles) many of whom served. (My Grandmother walked people out to the fields during the Norwich Blitz and made camp there.)
Edith Cavell, a great Norfolk Heroine who is one of the few women who served in WW1 to have a memorial to her name. 
Standing as I do in view of God and eternity, I realise that patriotism is not enough.
I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone.
Edith Louisa Cavell, October 11th 1915
