Remembrance day in UK
A minute of silence, poppies on the dress, veterans gathering and speaking.
My grandfather was a veteran of World War 1 and wounded for all his life. Alas, it made him also very irritable for his family.
He did like me. I remember, when he came to see me and told me "Ask any question and I will try to answer. If I can not, I will look in the books to find it for you."
There was no web yet, more then 70 years ago. But I learned to ask and I learned that one can find answers in books.
Today, I think of him. Grandpa Emil.
