Why I collect is a thread I did in GHW2.
Please read the thread.
MaHood died several hours from wounds suffered in the attack on Mons. He was severely wounded Nov 10, 1918. He died Nov 11 a few hours before the war ended. He served the entire war. I own his medals and they are in a special place in my collection and in my heart.
I visited his grave a year ago making a special trip to it in Valenciennes. Here he is in pic 7 and his grave.
