Show Notes
We're fast approaching the traditional month of remembrance. Catholic Churches have 'November Lists' so the community can pray for the souls of the departed. But the nation also pauses to pay its collective respects to those who died in the two World Wars and later conflicts. Our guest today is the former Bishop of the Forces the Rt Revd Richard Moth. We discuss how service personnel cope knowing their lives are frequently on the line. Also we discuss mental health in the military and another form of mourning - coping with the loss of a limb. We finish with three poignant World War One stories - two from the front line and one from back home.
