Do you have a family member on the list? My grandfather fought in WWII but I don't believe I have any relatives who fought in WWI.

There are two great-great uncles on my dad's side who died -- one in battle in 1918 during the Last 100 Days, and a second who fought with the original Vandoos but developed deafness and TB associated with his service and died in 1922. I'm not sure if he'd count but he is named in the Book of Remembrance, so I have to wait and see.
