    I HAVE recently returned from a trip to Ypres Cemetery and The Menin Gate in Belgium and have visited the British Cemetery at Bayeux, Normandy, France, where there are the graves of thousands who gave their lives in two world wars so that we today can enjoy the freedom and democracy that their sacrifice gave us today.
