Geoff Boucher holds a photograph of his grandfather, Sapper G. Boucher, who was from the 'doubly thankful' village of High Toynton, eastern England January 23, 2014. There are 13 villages in England and Wales where everyone who left to fight in World War One and World War Two returned home safely. These fortuitous communities are known as 'doubly thankful' villages. In many 'doubly thankful' villages their unusual status is modestly marked with a small memorial such as a plaque or lantern. The year 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. Picture taken January 23, 2014. REUTERS/Darren Staples (BRITAIN - Tags: ANNIVERSARY SOCIETY CONFLICT)
