Next year is the 100th anniversary of World War I, a war in which 10,000 British Home Children served. It is also the 100th anniversary of my great-grandma's wedding, only three weeks after the outbreak of the war. It was at her wedding, that my great-grandma wore the "gold and pearl necklace", a wedding gift from her husband, the same one that I wore on my wedding day 21 years ago. There couldn't be a more appropriate time to publish my great-grandma's story!
