9 December 1915, an eighteen year old Norman Frederick Paulin joined the Royal Warwick Regiment.  He served with them for a while, then was a part of the King’s Own Liverpool.  He served in the military until 1919.  I  know that he was in the trenches in France, and that he injured his hand opening a tin can.  The wound became infected.   This was his war, a war he did not talk about very much, but one which he survived.

For me this is the beginning of the World War One Centenary.
