Silent Night 1915

"On the Western Front the guns all died away..."

“On the Western Front the guns all died away …”

Lt Cian Clancy (1 Artillery Regiment) describes a truce in the trenches during Christmas 1915. This song captures the uniting power of the most popular of all Christmas carols.

It reminds us that a ceasefire allows the humanity and innate kindness of good people to shine in a time of darkness.

Perhaps the sentiments expressed here by Cian might motivate you to reach out a hand of support to those in difficulty at this time. Your generosity in giving blood, platelets or joining the Bone Marrow Register might help save the life of someone who is “just your type.”

Will you take a moment to read some more about the urgency of this #MarrowMatch request and encourage your friends to consider attending a Blood Transfusion clinic in the New Year?
