Another Mind-Blow

In 1223, William de Longespee became custodian of Shrewsbury Castle.

In 1914, John Harris joined the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry.

In 1985 (during my current lifetime), Shrewsbury Castle became home to the Shropshire Regimental Museum, housing the records and artifacts of several of Shropshire’s local regiments including the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry.

I’m speechless.
