Wait for me Daddy!

“And Good lives on, loves on, and conquers all.

All War must end in Peace. These clouds are lies. They cannot last.

The blue sky is the Truth.”

~ Chaplain Woodbine Willy, MC (World War I) 1883-1929

Note by Jack:

Geoffrey Anketell Studdert Kennedy MC (aka Woodbine Willie), was given his nickname Woodbine Willy for his custom of giving cigarettes to the blokes in the trenches in the Great War. He died on March 8th, 1929.
