Turning our backs on Britain's fallen | Mail Online We've all seen the news headlines such as '99.9% of kids think Churchill is a nodding dog' or '0.0001% of kids actually know we were in WW2'. So should there be a drive on informing the kids about the Wars we've fought? We've had a drive on getting the stories fromt eh last of the Tommies before they go, I'll assume we'll have another drive on getting the stories from our WW2 Tommies afore they go too. We've had concerted efforts to film teh Antarctic, but apart from World At War have we had any definitive, contempory shows on WW2, WW1 and others? Should we ensure that our kids are taught about what the War Memorials are? Why they are there? Who they remember to us? And, ever important in this modern age, who/how pays?
