“…. I hope we shall not cease to commemorate the Armistice; it is one of the few simple, comprehensible institutions which periodically remind us that between public events and private histories lies a close and profound relationship which we dare not forget”
Vera Brittain, Manchester Guardian, 11 November 1932
