TODAY’S generation will never understand the horrors of the First and Second World War.
Millions of men lost their lives fighting for their country on the battlefields of Europe.
For their loves ones back home the worry turned to devastation as war revealed its worst and their husbands, sons and brothers never returned.
One Gledholt woman will, for the first time, visit the place where her brother died in the Second World War.
Sydney Oliver was killed when his Boston bomber was shot down over Brittany in 1943.
His body was never recovered and his family back home were unable to give him the send off fitting for his hero status.
On Remembrance Sunday his sister Margaret Mullany will visit La Chapelle de Fougeretz near Rennes where a plaque will be unveiled in his honour.
As preparations for Remembrance Day are finalised, it is right Sydney is remembered, even if it is 68 years after his tragic death.
It is the French who are hosting the service and creating the plaque to Sydney and others who died in the country.
It will be there for not only family to visit, but for others to see and pay their own respects.
It’s a brilliant gesture and shows they are far from forgotten even so many years on.
