My Grandfather, Thomas Farrar (Grandpop), from Kettering, found the crucifix in the mud of the trenches in the first world war. He was shot through the side of his head and the bullet came out of his eye, which, of course, made him monocular.
When He fell, His head fell to one side forming a tourniquet on His neck.
The Germans that discovered Him took Him to an hospital and simply saved his life.
When He got home he made a cross to put the Crucifix on.
