Chris, this tribute to your Great Uncle has undone me this morning. A very moving account of his too short life. I lived in Bewdley for a few years and still visit regularly, in fact I'm visiting today . I'll be thinking of young Jack as I drive up Load Street.

Thanks for this great story and hope for many more from The Dispatch.

As Anne Forster says, a very moving account. Unfortunately there were so many like him during those four terrible years. My husband's grandfather died at the Battle of Coronel in November 1914, the war had hardly started. He left two children behind and a wife who was expecting a daughter, who was Richard's mother. Nice to see you name in print, I look forward to more of your writing.
