A few years ago, Ray Clark had a simple idea: send postcards to those who might share their thoughts with others on loss, remembrance, war, and peace. The response was remarkable. Men and women from all walks of life, from the Cabinet, the House of Lords, and the senior ranks of the British Army to ex-servicemen, military historians, journalists, and war widows, felt moved to express their feelings in a few words on that postcard. This book will sadden, provoke, and inspire. All the royalties on sales will go to two charities. The first is Help for Heroes, established in 2007 working for the wounded of the British Armed forces, an astonishingly successful organization responsible for huge capital projects like the £8.5m Rehabilitation Complex at Headley Court as well as providing funds to wounded individual members of the armed forces according to need. The second is Action Cancer, providing early detection, counseling, and support services and prevention education. They were there for Ray when his wife was diagnosed as terminally ill, and this book has been created with love and gratitude.
