My mother Violet (Vi) Hogg nee Stringer was only five when her father was called away to the war. She and her older sister Phyl told me about their mother remarrying and coming to New Zealand in 1924. They explained that a large framed photo of the three girls was their passport photo. I have been aware of the impact of the war on our family all my life. Of course I never met my grandfather but knowing about him is important to me and I fully appreciate that it was not his choice or the choice of many others like him to be sent off to that terrible war. They were wrong when that said that the First World War was the war to end all wars. Let us not forget the sacrifices of war and honour the memory of people like James.
