“Because of the importance of remembering the fallen, we are very committed to the values of the Somme Battlefields’ Partner network. We must never forget all these young men who came to fight and who gave their lives for the freedom of all. Indirectly, we become more intimate with these men through their family history; we are most touched by this. It is exactly what we experience with our Anglo-Saxon clientele: often researching a member of their family, they tell us their stories and we learn of their family history. It is important to exchange and share history, as we form, all nations combined, one great family, one of humanity and remembrance.”
