I never knew anything about this. Up till know only person in my family that I thought was in the Military is my cousin(who just got back from afghanistan)

Turns out 2 of my uncles were in the TA's. My grandad was in the merchant navy, one of his brothers was a Royal Marine, another brother was in the army. My grandmoms brother was also in the army and he died in a tank explosion.

Plus each of my great grandads served in WW2, and one of my great great great great great great grandads was in WW1.

Kinda cool finding this out, I honestly had no idea about this until now.
