Bought it myself as I am an ex-serviceman whose grandfather, Sgt Jack Galloway, 26th Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers (3rd Tyneside Irish) fought in the Battle of the Somme and was wounded on 1 July 1916. Most of my relatives to this day have served in the forces during the First and Second world wars and other conflicts since 1945.
