On this day in 1918 2nd Lt Victor Reginald Paulin, RAF died. His plane crashed near St Omer, France. He was buried in the cemetery there.
His loss was a great blow to his family, who mourned his loss.
The family had the following placed on his tombstone:
“HE LEFT ALL ROSE UP AND FOLLOWED HIM”
And so a hundred years later I honour his short life, and remember the cost of war.
