My great uncle, John Markham, service no.142609 was in WW1, in the 62nd Bn Machine Gun Corps. Unfortunately he died from his wounds just days before the war ended. He is buried in Doullons cemetry no.2, Nr Amiens, France.
As a way of doing something to honour the men that died, I am planning to make the journey so many of them didn't get to make. The Journey Home.
I am raising money for Help for Heroes, to help the heroes of this generation and their families to rebuild their lives at the point when they need it most.
For those who give the ultimate sacrifice, we support you.
Imagine your life changing overnight. Suddenly, the world you knew is not accessible. You must start from scratch, all over again.This is happening right now.Every day, seven people leave the Armed Forces with life changing injuries. Many struggle, meaning they and their families need specialist help to aid recovery from wounds both visible and hidden. Your donation allows Help for Heroes to continue providing vital support, now and in the future.Thank you for supporting me, Help for Heroes and all those who need them.
