My own father survived {by a whisker] the first World War in the RAMC, so to me the play was very moving and I needed my paper-tissue box.
I believe one of his London cousins was killed but I have still to find out who he was, how and where. What is so mysterious is that he told me that he was crucified in Abyssinia and that this was not so unusual in that era.
