Hold On, Stand Fast: The Armistice Centenary 1918-2018

Posted in Armistice Day Centenary 2018 on November 10, 2018 by marksamuels

I remember all those fallen in the Great War for their country and for freedom:

(b. 1883) John Samuels (my great-grandfather) of the Royal Field Artillery.

I remember also his brothers, also fallen, most of the same regiment enlisted at Woolwich, but who all joined up for the same cause:

(b. 1885) William Samuels
(b. 1888) Joseph Samuels
(b. 1891) Harry Samuels
(b. 1893) Albert Samuels
(b. 1895) Frederick Samuels

Their blood still runs in my veins. Keep the home fires burning.

Until the next time.
