My uncle died in the First World War too

My uncle died too

First published in News

I am writing to you about the roll of honour that The Argus carried in its supplement to celebrate the start of World War One.

As far as I can see, my great uncle 2 LT William Maurice Fowler of the 2nd Battalion the Royal Sussex Regiment, who died of wounds on 26 September 1918 was not included. He was from Caversham, Reading.

No disrespect to anyone who dies in wars but why would anyone want to celebrate war. I think the total British Army casualties in the first world war were 956,703 so you would think we would have learned a lesson by now. This doesn't ring true as we rush headlong into a nuclear conflict with Russia. But don't worry guys, all the heads of state and people deemed important will be safe in bunkers when this happens. But let's take solace from this final act of lunacy, we're not a pleasant species so good riddance.
