Thread Name: WWII Memorial, finally!
Subject: RE: WWII Memorial, finally!
Ah, so the bug is that the memorial has only just been made after 55 years. There are relatives of men shot as cowards and deserters in WWI, 85 years ago, who are still waiting to have them recognised as casualties of war - Shell shock and neuroses victims, these days we call it Post Traumatic Stress syndrome and give 'em disablilty benefit. Those shot as deserters then didn't even get a burial in consecrated ground.
