PRIVATE MATTHEW PRING, 16 FROM EAST MOUNTAIN
Remembrance Day? What it means to me is remembering every single soldier that fought in the war in one way or another. Not just the soldiers who fought for the Highlanders but also those who fought on the other side as well, which is a story that not a lot of people are told, because they also fought for their families and loved ones back home – but they were on the other side.
We need to make sure the facts we do have are not glamourized or put down – that they stay the same, so we can see that this is what happened, and this is how it happened and there’s nothing that changes, so it stays factual for the entirety of world history.
