Remembrance day, a day to never forget. We will always remember the people who died or were injured fighting for the liberty of our country. The 11th November is the anniversary of the date that the hostilities of the first world war ended.
On 11th November 2015, several war veterans visited King Edward VI High School once again. They were former students at our school. Christian Ford and James Tincknell interviewed one of the veterans and he told us about his time in the forces.
We discovered that he joined the armed forces because he had no choice as he was conscripted as a teenager. He was petrified when he first joined but made lots of mates and really enjoyed it after a couple of weeks. When he went out to fight he felt nervous but he had a job to do and said that he was committed to his job. We are lucky today that we do not have national conscription because men like these fought and died for our freedom.
