Remembering the fallen?


As we approach Remembrance Sunday it is appalling to read that thieves are stripping war Memorials of their commemorative plaques in order to sell them on as scrap metal. One example given today is the village of Carlshalton whose war memorial has been entirely stripped of metal of the 14 brass plates bearing the names of men who died in World War 1. As the great-granddaughter of a soldier who lost his life in Ypres saving the life of another, I am truly disgusted. If ever there was an example of a broken society this it it! It strikes me that there is a good argument for bringing back National Service -if our war memorials are being desecrated then respect is truly being lost from our society.
