Remembered Today:

Charles William Hood ASC


Recommended Posts

Dead but not forgotten , died on 17th April 1916, a hundred years ago today. He enlisted in the ASC days after his 4th child was born in December 1914 and was rushed off to war in France by January because of the need for his expertise with horses,he was a strapper in the ASC no TS-5031,driving a gun carriage caught by an incoming shell and lies in a Calais cemetery now l.His obituary in our local echo ran

We mourn for him in silence

not with outside show

For the heart that mourns sincerely

beats silently and low.

Deeply mourned by his sorrowing wife and little children and sisters in law and all who knew him.

I was brought up by a mother who sang Roses of Picardy with heartfelt emotion all her life, RIP grandad,we will remember them.
