I know this is a day early ....
On 11 November 1918 at 11 am the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. This year marks the 89th anniversary of the armistice. So whatever you think about war we should all tomorrow remember those from our country that gave so much during WWI.
This has become even more relevant for my family. This year we discovered that my wife’s grandmother’s uncle was killed in WWI.
Phillip Marich Passmore
Unit 19 Infantry Battalion (June 1915)
He arrived at Anzac Cove on the 17th May 1915 and was killed on the 16th November 1915. He was killed at Popes Hill. He was 19.
Phillip may be a long distant relative but when we researched into to him it really brought home the shame and brutally of war to us. What made it even worse is that we saw a copy of the letter his father had signed allowing him to enlist.
Lest we Forget.
