FORTHCOMING EVENTS 

 

11 November meeting – David James – The Forgotten War 1914-18

The greatest maritime tragedies suffered by the Japanese and Americans in WW1 and the restoration of the Japanese War Memorial in Angle. 
This was a really high profile event, but the really poignant story is of a lady who had a photograph of her Grandfather and his grave but had no idea where the grave was. Imagine her reaction to see the same grave photo in a Japanese newspaper. Who is this David James, where is Angle, I must go to the Ceremony was her reaction.
David arranged for her to be a Guest of Honour and be presented to HRH the Duke of Gloucester, she was so overcome that she fainted before he arrived. Fortunately she recovered sufficiently to take part in the Service and lay a wreath. Afterwards she told me through an interpreter that her Grandfather was lonely when no one knew where he was, now the family know, he is happy . 
This really struck me, that my little effort had had such an impact, not only on her but all the Japanese people present.
