Yeoman Warder Ken McGRATH - Former Green Howard XIX

By NDODS    
Good Morning to you all at ePhotozine.

As you as know today is a Day of Remembrance. It is a day to remember not only those who gave their lives in the service of peace throughout the last 100 years, but to those who were left behind. The Land Girls, the Home Guard, the Munition Factory Workers, the WRVS, the YMCA, the Police, the Fire Brigade, the Merchant Navy, the Coast Guard and so many others will also be remembered for their part in out history.

Today's image was captured a couple of year ago at Buckingham Palace. From left to right you see. WOII Kenneth McGrath, General Sir Richard Dannat, Me, and Major Bradley all of us ex serving members of 1st Battalion The Green Howards.

Today's image is a personal reminder of my time serving with the Green Howards and particularly alongside WOII Kenneth (Kenny) McGrath. Kenny sadly passed away last year after a short illness. He will be remembered not only by those who fought alongside him, but his close family, fellow Yeomen Warders and his life long friends.

Rest in Peace Kenny. Once a Howard always a Howard

Regards Nathan

As Kate says, Nathan - thank you. Few of us have such personal and significant memories to go with the national day of remembrance.

Vin Garbutt wrote a song for you and your comrades, 'Welcome home, Howard Green.' You can hear it on YouTube HERE.
