A person should have an opinion on everything, It becomes tact whether you reveal that opinion or not.

Hello,

You recently posted a newspaper cutting regarding Joseph Bird who worked for Chances Glass and was killed in action in France during WW2. I have discovered he was my first cousin and would love to know any further details you may have or simply the name of the newspaper concerned.
