Joseph Henry's Story

Joseph was Roberts Granddad and again came from very large family.

From farming people but willing to do his bit of his country awarded medals for his bravery in France.

Very strong willed this must be something in older generation make up and to survive at what ever the cost of human life.

I do not believe in war my self but i have not found one family member who did not sign up for his king and Country.

Thank you to all the brave men in my family very proud to be a part of this family and what it stands for.
