This is the head stone of my grandfather's brother.
Two brothers went off to do their bit in WWI from the colonial outpost of the Empire,
Both fell victim to the Spanish flu epidemic.
One survived - my grandfather.
The other is buried a long way from home in Grangegorman military cemetery in Dublin.
Back in the country of his ancestors.
A day to remember all those who didn't come back
