Fromelles


Recommended Posts

My mother, age 90, just rang me, very excited, to tell me she had seen a photo of her favourite uncle, Jack Goode, on TV.  He was one of the young officers of the Ox & Bucks Light Infantry, in a picture shown on Breakfast News relating to the WW1 mass grave at Fromelles.

My Great Uncle Jack a charming and generous man, survived the war and was one of my 2 favourite uncles.  I once made a trip through northern France with him as he pointed out some of the places where he had been in the trenches. 

I now live not much more than an hour's drive from Froyelles where many of his friends and colleagues in that photo must have died.
