Lest We Forget .....

This is my paternal Grandfather, Thomas Simon Mitchell, who was in the Seaforth Highlanders for the duration of WW1. He served in France and Mesopotamia.
He was injured twice - once by a lump of shrapnel while fooling round in a bomb crater with mates and then shot in appendix by German bullet. He died in 1942 from the effects of gassing received in WW1 - he was in the Home Guard despite this in WW2
