IN reply to reader Robin C Oliver's letter (July 24 edition) asking: 'Is The Bugle going over the top with war stories?' I say 'No, it is not.'
I've written many articles for The Bugle about the Great War and my own Normandy service, also a series of articles about A childhood in Caldmore and Palfrey in the Thirties some time ago.
I used to get phone calls about the war stories and also about my time in India, so I do know the readers are very interested in local warfare stories.
The Bugle's commemoration WWI book, We Will Remember Them, on local lads of 96 pages did not include many existing Normandy veterans because it would be impossible to include them all.
But this unique commemoration of 100 years on August 4th and 70th Normandy commemorations gives them a chance to still have their say in this newspaper.
The more war stories we have the better, as readers love to read them, so keep up the good work, Bugle.
