Subject: RE: Anyone watching My Son Jack?
Superb drama - the whole cast were excellent. Daniel Ratcliffe as Jack was perfect casting, personifying the youth that were thrust into the nightmare. Like so many of the young soldiers of the time, take away the moustache and what do you have? Boys. I don't know how they did it. It certainly was a different world.
As I have stated in a previous thread, my great-uncle was a lieutenant in the Worcestershire Regt. and was killed at Paschendaele (Ypres 90 years on). The scenes of trench warfare were very graphic and gave one an idea of what he and his comrades must have gone through.
