This week’s is­sue has the theme of Re­mem­brance as we all pre­pare to com­mem­o­rate the 100th an­niver­sary of the Ar­mistice on Novem­ber 11.

Our writ­ers have done us proud, and I should warn you that you may need to keep a tis­sue or two to hand as you read our poignant sto­ries and fea­tures.

On page 61, “A Red-let­ter Day” by Ali­son Carter looks at events at the end of the Great War from an un­usual an­gle, while Mar­cia J. Lin­gard’s “In Flan­ders Field” on page 23 brought a tear to my eye, as did “Age Shall Not Weary Them” by An­nie Har­ris, which is on page 43.

An­other tragic and much more re­cent loss in­spired the Su­maria fam­ily to travel from the UK to Turkey in a colour­ful tuk tuk to raise aware­ness of the risks of epilepsy. You can read about their amaz­ing ad­ven­ture on page 74.

Fi­nally, don’t miss our very spe­cial recipe se­lec­tion which you’ll find on page 36. Karen Burns Booth has recre­ated some of the orig­i­nal recipes that ap­peared in the “Friend” through­out 1918, giv­ing us all just a very small taste of what life was like for our fore­bears.
