95 years ago on this day, WWI ended.
Until two years ago, I knew I had a great uncle who died in this war but I didn't know much else.
I didn't know what he looked like or where he had fought.
My Dad, Jack Williams, has his war "medal", a souvenir which was sent from the King to all the soldier's families if they died during action. Great uncle William Joseph Williams was wounded in his leg and died from his injuries on February 22, 1917.
He is buried in Salonika, Greece, so very far away.
To my knowledge no one in our family has visited his grave.
It's my dream to do so one day soon.
We will never forget you, dear uncle William.
