Learning the lessons of the past: 'Pack up your troubles' for WW1 centenary

Stroud News and Journal:

1:52pm Friday 15th August 2014

MADAM - As the nation turns its attentions to marking 100 years since the start of the First World War, a number of us believe that the Centenary is an opportunity to learn from the lessons of the past. One lesson that stands out particularly strongly to me, as Chief Executive of the military charity SSAFA, is the spirit of bravery and optimism in the face of such terrible times, demonstrated not only by the soldiers at the front but by the families they left behind. We see the same courage in those we support today – be they serving personnel, veterans or family members coping with injury, illness or personal difficulties. The song ‘Pack Up Your Troubles’ encapsulated that spirit during WW1, and is still sung and played today. It became what many would call the ‘viral hit’ of the Great War, and we at SSAFA are hoping to breathe new life into it for the Centenary.
