Everyone knew each other and you could come and go as though the village was one big house filled with one massive extended family.
The stories were both very funny and sad and many focused on the war. To me, as a teenager, they seemed full of excitement and adventure. I would have to grow older and more mature to realize the sacrifice and bitterness that accompanied each and every one of them. The story behind the play.

Doug had the most amazing array of photos from the war — especially from North Africa and Italy. Having only ever seen such photos in history books, it felt like such a thrill to hold a real photo from there, taken for or by the person sitting next to me. It was like having my own private, living history book, filled with the personal stories of those who were there, on the ground, average, working men who found themselves, quite unexpectedly, as walk-on parts in the history of their time. Doug told me how the younger brothers of his wife, Gin, had followed him to war: these would be my great uncles Ken and Lewis.
They had used the long lines to dodge questions about their age and sign up, figuring that it was not fair that Doug had to go to war alone while their other brother-in-law — my grandfather Ron — got to do his bit based in England flying bombers.
They felt brothers had to stick together. Because of their obvious youth, Lewis and Ken had been assigned the role of gathering what needed to be gathered, Lewis as a Supply Sergeant.

But not for the three brothers. They saw Rommel defeated and made it out of North Africa. They survived the invasion and battle for Sicily as Monty and Patton vied for the island. By , they found themselves at the Battle of Monte Cassino.
