September 5, 1915.
The date on which William Joseph Williams, my great uncle, went to France with the 11th battalion of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. A few months later, the battalion went to Salonika.
I've been reading a fair amount about Salonika, and it isn't a place I would like to be fighting in a war.
However, I'd love to visit the battle fields one day.
My great uncle, younger brother to my grandpa, John Griffith Williams.
I think of him often.
