We Walk In A Shadow
100 years ago on August 4th 1914 ...... well we all know the rest ....
I found this book, left lying in the cobwebbed dust in the attic when we moved in 37 years ago.
It's a little 'Active Service' Testament 1916
In the front of the book is a hand written message from Lord Roberts to his troops. It's dated 25th May 1914 -
'I ask you to put your trust in God. He will watch over you and strengthen you.
You will find in this little Book guidance when you are in health, comfort when
you are in sickness, and strength when you are in adversity'
There was a name and address at the back of the book -
'Chas. Wm. Ling
18, Egerton Road,
It was dated 13/8/16
They said that it was the war to end all wars ...... but the pain goes on.
