Only a couple of nights ago I saw on the BBC world service TV, a repeat of the AR programme in which you and the contents of your grandfather's trunk appeared - Very special

 

Remembered with Respect

After a good few hours reading I have reached the end of this wonderful thread. I'm struggling to find the right words but I agree with everything previous readers have said. A great, humbling, emotional read, thanks Egbert for sharing.

Greetings Egbert.

 

I hope you don't mind me dropping this on your thread.

I am going to suggest that this is my Grandfathers WW1 trunk. It stands to reason that all soldiers would need to have some personal items with them on the front line.

This is a family item which my Father used as a tool box. 

 

Just looking for your views,

Seasons Greetings Martin.
