Wartime losses
MY great-grandmother was a tiny, frail-looking woman, always dressed in black. In her younger years she ran a newsagents near the White Swan pub, Northgate, Newark.

Her name was Ellen Grosse and when she could no longer work in the shop her daughter, Nellie, took over.

My great-grandmother lost three sons in that terrible first world war, Thomas, Joseph and Alfred Grosse.

I want to thank the Adver-tiser for the eight-page supplement and Pete Stevens for his hard work in tracing photographs of the war dead.

Inspiring message
Next month London’s Olympic Park will once again be in use when more than 400 competitors from 14 nations compete in the Invictus Games — a competition organised for wounded members of the Armed Forces.

Backed by Prince Harry, its aim is to use sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect of those who serve their country.

Inspire is perhaps the key word.

Among those taking part is Nathan Cumberland, of Fernwood, a former soldier who lost his left leg below the knee and right leg above the knee in an explosion while serving in Afghanistan in 2009.
