William's Story

Thank You is not a big enough word to say. You save our future you gave you life. The way I look at I look at it know as how you could live in such horrible conditions, all to save our future. Without your great help and of those of others we would all not be who we are today.

For Our Tomorrow, You Gave Your Today.

I thank you so much for what you did for us all.x

Sadly your life was ended, on April 5th 1916 just beyond 2 years before armistice.

I hope I will be able to meet you in heaven, and then i'd say a big enough thank you for me and the world.

Thank You So Much
