"Oh to be in England now that April's there"

In the maternal line of my family, I am the first woman in four generations to raise her children to adulthood with their father alongside her.

My mother, grandmother and great-grandmother were not so lucky.

When you’re missing a family member, who cares about the honour to die for your country?

I hate ANZAC Day

& I hate Gallipoli

& I hate the annual military grooming

& I hate always getting ready for somebody else's battle

& I also hate the RAF

& I wish I'd had longer with my father
