WW1 Memories: Great-Grandfather James Marrey

WW1 Memories: Great-Grandfather James Marrey. Joined up underage. Fought at Omdurman and Spion Kop (seriously wounded) and a sergeant during WW1. Photo taken in Grimethorpe. His two sons George and Bernard went into the army  in WW2. Fortunately James lived to old age. Due to common-sense in Europe the last two generations have not had to fight in Europe. Let’s hope that the decision to leave the the EU won’t result in future generation called to war.
