I remember my grandfather well on mum's side as he died when I was 26. I loved visiting the grandparents and listening to his old ww1 war stories. He was buried alive by a shell but his canvas sheet provided an air pocket and he was dug out later expected to be dead. He was kicked by a dead horse as a teenager when he was moving the animal onto a cart and the farmer said that in Germany that was good luck and he would live a very long life. Ironic it was a German farmer. He loved recounting that story. We have his treasured clock.
