The Largest ever loss of Life for The London Fire Brigade
« on: Sunday 01 March 20 12:57 GMT (UK) »
This is one of the saddest and most tragic stories I have written about and what is still today, the Largest ever loss of life for the London Fire Brigade at one incident. This involves my Great Aunt, but itís also one of the research projects that I am probably most satisfied with.

This was so sad to read, but thanks for posting it.

I know someone who thinks that people who didn`t actually fight in the war were somehow derelict in their duty.

This shows that it`s not the case; some of those listed were of the age to be called up, but gave their lives and service to the war effort just as much.

We should be thankful for all of them.

I agree Billy, their contributions were equally as important to the Armed Forces service men and women who gave so much to protect our freedom
