Debt of Honour
Debt of Honour

 

 AUGUST 2014 - I hope to be able to publish a new revised expanded edition of A DEBT OF HONOUR and would be very grateful for copies of photographs and stories of local men who served in WWI and WWII. I can be contacted at stevenewmills@aol.com
 

 

A DEBT OF HONOUR

 

 

 

   THEIR BRIGHT SPIRIT STILL TENANTS 

           THE HEARTS OF THOSE WHO LOVED THEM. 

         THEY PASSED OUT OF THE SIGHT OF MEN
 
               BY THE PATH OF GLORY AND SELF SACRIFICE.
