I am glad to report John that there is a great interest in Ireland's part in the Great War and the relatives of Ireland's 'Unknown Soldiers' are coming over to the battlefields in their droves thesedays which is encouraging. For many of these returning soldiers the war never ended and many were killed after 1922 because they had chosen to wear the British Army khaki.
Know that we fools, now with the foolish dead, Died not for flag ,nor King, nor Emperor, But for a dream, born in a herdman's shed, And for the secret Scripture of the poor.
They, looking back , all th' Eastern side beheld.Of Paradise, so late their happy seat.
'There's a good time coming, though we may never live to see it'.
