"We Remember" Booklet 2006
The Great War was
called the war to end all wars. In the 1930s Dovorian teenagers
Vera Easton and Alfred Webb went with Alfie’s parents to
Belgium. They revisited the fields where Alfie’s father, Alex,
fought - and where so many of his friends still lie. Like so
many others then they could not have dreamt then that they, in
their turn, would be called to serve. Alfie was on the Atlantic
convoys in World War II, Vera, shell-shocked by the constant
bombardment on Dover, went to a munitions factory in Luton. The
scars were life-long.
We’re told there have
been just 26 days without armed conflict since 1945. We remember
all those harmed by human hostility.
Special note: these are Maggie S-K's parents.
