wwwendy this Rosemary & pepita damper with tomato chilli chutney - all made onsite - had just been popped out of the oven when I called in last week. Loving the combination of good old fashioned home style cooking and vintage eye candy at every turn! More in today's #UonSunday magazine in The Sunday Mail.

wwwendy Robert Francis Augustus Hughes died in the Second Battle of Krithia, #Gallipoli, May 8,
2015. He was killed along with hundreds of other NZ infantrymen as they moved across the open land of the Daisy Patch into Ottoman machine gun and rifle fire.
His brother, James Herbert Yelverton Hughes survived Gallipoli and went on to fight on the Western Front - writing regularly in his diary and letters home to his parents and to his dear Emma. After the war they married and had 10 children - the youngest is my Dad.
I have read all of my grandfathers war letters - in some he describes the French countryside and the flowers growing near him, perhaps as a distraction from all the horrors he is witnessing around him. In one he writes to Emma he is "enclosing a cornflower" ... "There are some lovely specimen here." He writes of meeting comrades of his brother's and how dearly they spoke of him.

And he reflects sometimes, including this while still at Gallipoli: "I remember at one time thinking and saying with the complete arrogance only obtained by colossal ignorance that war was not altogether a bad thing, it had some good points. I haven't seen much of it yet but now think it is nothing but a beastly waste of men, time and money." Lest we forget.

  •   gillianbellcake Thank you for sharing your grandfather' letters @wwwendy. They remind me of many of the wonderful authors and poets who emerged at that time, their writings forged by the horrors of war yet full of enlightened about the purpose of life. I'm planting Flanders poppies today and also cornflowers ... 2w
