As we celebrate remembrance weekend I started to think about all the Arsenal players who played for our great club the ones who later went on the serve and protect our freedom. They went off as footballers but they came back as heros that never again would we forget.
We remember men like:
Second Lieutenant Joseph Dines
Corporal Albert Beney
Bombardier Spencer Thomas Bassett
Lance Corporal Leigh Roose MM
Private Charles Edward Randall
Lance Corporal James Maxwell
Private John “Pat” Flanagan
And of course we remember those how died fighting for our freedom:
Corporal George Ford
For the past and the present, for the young men and woman of today and yesterday that have fought and are still fighting for this great nation I say thank you from the bottom of my heart, you are brave and fearless.
