Thanks for that Zelley

It quite sad because my Great Uncle actually died
before his only child was born.

A special thanks to Roger Waters of "Pink Floyd"
fame for his symbol in song for the widows and children in the form of
"When The Tigers Broke Free".

Although it was dedicated to his father
and the Royal Fusiliers lost on the beaches
in Italy in 1944, it represents a protest of loss
for all the widows and children left behind.

Suprising that you should mention William Fox.His obituary is on the same page of the local newspaper,from 1916, as that of my Uncle Samuel.He came from the same county of North Wales as my Uncle.He,too, was with the 16th Batt R.W.F. but was with B Coy..
