A Story for Remembrance Day
This weekend has been one of poignant tales of sacrifice and remembering men and women who laid down their lives for our freedom. Many of those who survived still bear horrific scars both physically and mentally. Here is a short story I wrote a few years ago that was published on Cafe Lit. It's a tribute to all those who came back from World War II but had seen and experienced things that they'd never forget, about a young soldier coming home to the girl he left behind. 


  1. A truly lovely story, Jan. So poignant. Thank you for sharing it. xx

    1. Thanks, Sue. My dad was fortunate not to be injured but the war affected him deeply. He wouldn't talk about it but he must have confided in my mum about stepping over bodies when they arrived on D-Day. We owe them all so much. xx
