At this morning’s remembrance day service at St Anthony’s, we remembered the officers and men who died during conflict who came from the sparsely populated Cartmel Fell area.
It was especially moving to hear of the three Willan brothers who all died in the Great War at different times.
One of the brothers was married with a child.
It is beyond belief to imagine what the parents of these three brave men went through after hearing they had lost all three sons.
Lest we forget.
