NB:

Ensure tetanus jabs are up to date. Otherwise, see your local GP for a tetanus vaccination if you have cut yourself on a plant or got soil or manure in an open wound.

If working with or being around anywhere where there is anything rusty is especially prone to tetanus,  and its simple to check booster vaccinations for both the UK and abroad,  beaches,  boats, farmland, visitor attractions,  water both open and leaky pipes etc etc 

just check kk.

100 Years on

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Passchendaele

A Daisytrail collage made 14 Nov 2010 for my Great Uncle Harry Thomas M. (in the pics).

Wars are terrible,  I dont know where my Great Harry fought or where another Uncle of mine Uncle Charles his childhood friend and nephew who was a medical orderly served:  They both came home but sadly Harry died from the effects of Mustard Gas poisioning some few years later.

Other Great Uncles served and some died some survived WW1 in the Navy.

Illness in the early 20th Century

.

In 1918 the Influenza epidemic, pandemic claimed the lives of more people than WW1. This in no way changes the bravery of any serving personnel in the War.

.

A further two Great Aunts and another Great Uncle from the same family died of influenza. Despite being a virus,  other deadly diseases had no antibiotics available to treat them until after 1928.
