On Sunday morning, probably after you read this, I will set off for my biannual trip to Paris Airshow. In June as you drive down the A1 from Lille to Paris the poppies of the Somme valley are in full bloom. I will make a 30 mile detour on the way to a little village called Templeux-Le-Guerard where there is a little know cemetery containing the last remains of around 700 British soldiers. Amongst them is my Great Uncle John, a private in the 9th Battalion âAshton Palsâ The Manchester Regiment who survived being shot in the neck on his 19th birthday in Gallipoli only to be machine gunned whilst repairing the wire in no man's land in May 1917. He lies alongside the other 6 members of the wiring party. There is nobody left alive on this planet who ever met 20 year old John Tindall. Most of us have family buried in these fields; Make the effort and remember them.
