George Evans served with the Royal Warwickshire Regiment in World War Two. He regularly recited poetry at the annual Remembrance Day service in the shroopshire villge of Wellington. in 2014 he recited one of his poems:
I remember my friends and my enemies too
We all did our duties for our countries
We all obeyed our orders
Then we murdered each other.
Isn’t war stupid.?
