On this special anniversary of 100 years since the end of WW1 thank you for remembering Benjamin Haizelden. He is a family member of mine on my Mother’s side. We are a large family but many of us remember older relatives who spoke about ‘Uncle Ben’ who never returned.
God grant his soul eternal rest.
