Last Post

On Thursday last in a shop in Portadown, I bought this 3 x disc audio book. Following on from the best selling Forgotten Voices of the Great War, Max Arthur traced and interviewed the last 21 British veterans of the First World War.
The oldest of the men interviewed was 110 the youngest 105. In their own words they describe the extraordinary changes which occoured during their lifetimes. The words of these last remaining few men speak for an entire generation.
Each week, I travel between 500 - 700 miles and I do get bored listening to music on the radio or CD, now and again I listen to an audio book - it is great and takes you away from a tedious trip.
