LANKY WORDSdrop these into your everyday conversation and watch their faces...
A very moving and chilling letter to my Grandad, Mr. Herbert Dutton of Atherton, Lancashire who served with the King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment in the First World War. This brings home in a very graphic way what it was like in the trenches for the ordinary Lancashire soldier. Click HERE or on the above hyperlink to read it.
The lass in question is my mother - Mabel, daughter of the above Herbert Dutton -who was sent as a young girl to work in a Munitions Factory at Risley near Warrington during the Second World War.
The Munition Workers were the unsung heroes of the war - often working in extremely dangerous conditions. They are not represented at Remembrance Day at the Cenotaph - and they should be.
This is her story. Click here or on the above hyperlink to read it. Like the above letter, it is harrowing in parts. Thought you had a boring job? Just be thankful you weren't working on the Suicide Squad...
