Walter Poole Terry

Just a quick post to honour the memory of Walter Poole Terry, my Great Grandfather, gassed in France during The Great War.

Apparently, a new memorial to the fallen is being unveiled this saturday at Oystermouth, and my parents will go.

I can't remember being told much about him as a kid, just some shady mentions about him being gassed. Bizzarely enough, I was chatting to some of my Year 10 class just yesterday about the effects of Chlorine gas. I shall have to do some research about his life when my life returns to a more sensible pace.
