This is the counter-point to Loach’s thread. I’m curious about posters with no known ancestors killed in battle.
Now, I appreciate that everyone likely has some, if you go back far enough. I’m interested, though, in family traditions and knowledge.
As I mentioned in the other thread, I’m not aware of any ancestors who were killed in battle: no direct line, no distant cousins, uncles or aunts.
My grandads were married with children during WWI, so stayed home. My Dad was too young for WWII, although older uncles and aunts from both sides of the family were in the military. No casualties.
No family members have been in the Armed Forces since WWII.
No knowledge of anyone from either side of my family who were in the military before WWI, in the 19th, century, which is about as far back as my family knowledge goes.
Anyone else with no ancestors killed in battle?
