William Harding Dyson 1896 – 1917 – one young man’s story

Today, November the 11th we remember the war dead. My Great Uncle Willie was one of those. It always helps me to focus on an indiviual when thinking about something as enormous as the lives lost in countless wars, so I offer up a post I wrote back in 2014 with my brother, about Uncle Willie.

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published two anthologies of short stories, Life, in a Grain of Sand and Life in a Flash. More will appear soon, including a memoir of my mother's last years. I will try and continue to blog regularly at geofflepard.com about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.
