100 years ago today. Silence. After 4 long years of battle. I cannot comprehend what the men, women and children went through during these unbelievably, tumultuous times. We stand by you, we stand with you, we are proud of you. We thank you. We will never forget. 🌺
Roy Valentine O’Neil.
My great grandfather.
A war hero.
I never met you but I have always heard the stories. Thank you for my freedom.
C/O my uncle @wrightricardl .. “We stand on your shoulders ---100 years ago, France 1918 Grandpa O'Neil was a Stretcher Bearer Medic with the Essex and Kent Scottish Regiment. He was a non combatant who willingly put his life on the line everyday in the Hell that was called "no-mans land" tending to the wounded and dying likely on both sides.”🙏
