My grandfather Wellwood Stanley ANDERSON

Hi, I picked up a New Testament for
Service men which was given out by
Agnes E. Weston of the Royal Sailors
Rest. It has a message writen by Agnes.
It was given to G. H. Beavis who was on
the Argus 9 mess F62890. I hope to find
out more about him, about the Argus and
also about these New Testaments.

I only came across your site by chance, being in the midst of research into the war service of two "Pals" battalions of Kitchener's New Armies.

The content of your site has added another perspective to what I must include in my book ie the injustice faced by the men who managed to survive and return home.

A thought-provoking and highly informative work - many thanks for the eye-opener.

On the poem "The Superfluous Woman" by Vera Brittain ...whose would-be husbands/fathers of their children are killed in WWI's carnage:
Both Agatha Christie & Dorothy L. Sayers unofficially honor the "superfluous" single woman of the post WWI generation in many of their great mystery stories.
They gently rebuke their society that did not seek the talents of this large group of women who are not immersed in husband & family, and who could have done so much...
Both these great writers imply that their society is constantly surprised when a Miss Marple or a Miss Climpson has something of value to say...or do.

Last June I had the privilege to work for two weeks at a business
located near Tower Bridge. Each day on my way back to the hotel I purposely
walked past the Cenotaph. I was in my own way trying to remember "The Glorious Dead"
from both wars. I happened to be in London at the 60th anniversary of Dunkirk.
England's bleeding sons were brought home from the disaster in France. If nothing else,
they were being brought home to a country who truly honours the sacrifices of its
people. Everyday I stopped and looked at the Cenotaph and wondered if the people
whizzing by in their autos or busses realized what they were passing and if they realized
they might not be passing by in their hurry had it not been for "The Glorious Dead".
Thank you for making the effort of creating this site.
