We will remember them
AS we approach Remembrance Sunday, we want to remember the thousands of men and women who served our country during Britain’s war years.
They may have seen action during the First or Second World Wars, or perhaps they kept the home fires burning while the lads were far away.
We asked readers to share their family photos of parents, grandparents or great-grandparents who made a difference during Britain’s most turbulent of times.
Do you have a photo of a relative you wish to share? Email news@ coventrytelegraph.net with your name, their name, rank and regiment if possible. Paul Cooper: “This is Joseph Cooper. Think he went South Africa but came back after an accident and spent the rest of the war in Burma.” Mark Reilly: “My great grandfather Reginald Farmer who fought in Passchendaele. He lived in Leamington Spa and served in the Royal Horse Artillery in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment.”
Reg Woolley: “My grandfather and his brother. My grandfather was a driver in the army and was in North Africa and Italy. My great uncle was in the Med. My great grandmother had seven sons. Two more fought in the First World War and they all came home. This picture was taken in Port Talbot, at my great grandmother’s house. My late parents purchased the house next door in 1985. One of the current owners of my great grandmother house my son’s godmother.”
Jack Robinson-Wing: “Going to Ypres for Remembrance. Remembering two great uncles and a great-granddad. The wreath I’ve made to lay at Ploegsteert Memorial on Friday.”
Lee Rymell: “My greatgranddad Private 15860 Daffern, 11th Hussars.”
