Inspirational Breakfast with Esther Higham

You’ll probably be familiar with the old hymn Abide With Me. A new version of it has been released by the Military Wives Choirs to mark the 100th anniversary of the burial of the unknown warrior at Westminster Abbey. 
Of over 1 million British and Commonwealth servicemen and women killed in World War 1, around 165,000 never received a proper burial, some left on the battlefields where they fell. One unidentified fallen serviceman was returned to London and given a full state burial on 11th November 1920 to represent all those who would never receive a funeral. 
The hymn, Abide With Me, was sung at the service. 
Ruth sings Soprano 1 in this version of the hymn and spoke to Michael Fanstone, telling him first of all, why it affected her so personally.
