Lest we forget.....

Today is the eleventh of November.  On this day, at 1100 hours, the guns of the first world war fell silent.  Let us remember those who gave their lives in all wars, those who survived, but wounded to the end of their days in heart or mind or body, and those who were bereaved.

Lest we forget....we will remember them!

In many countries the poppy is worn as the symbol of remembrance.  To find out why read the Story behind the Remembrance Poppy.

A great review for 'Merdeka' on the QARANC website

According to a website dedicated to Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC): 

'Merdeka is a military book that smoothly finds the balance between love, history and warfare.' 

The review also states:

The QARANC and RAMC feature in Merdeka and a romance soon blossoms between Alick and a QA Sister serving at the Military Hospital Penang at Minden Barracks..............There is a huge emotional feel to Merdeka and the effects of combat and killing on the young officer, especially following the strange turn of events during the ambush.

To read the whole review visit the 'Books About Army' page on the QARANC website.
