Poppy day

Mike Haupt (EAA 322 member as is his son Steve) sent me the following article on the life and death of his grandmother’s brother. It is an emotional story on one of millions of fine young men cut down in their prime. What a waste of a man who would more than likely have gone on to great things had it not been for yet another futile war which killed millions. It was particularly interesting to me as my paternal grandfather was also a lieutenant in the Royal Field Artillery and was badly gassed on the Somme. He recovered and went on to become a C.A, dying in his 50s. I barely remember him, but my Dad told me that his father never fully recovered from the gas nor the trauma of life in the trenches… Lest we forget.
