I can remember this as if it were yesterday, however, many years ago, when I was in primary school, Our class had a WWI memorial lesson and we were all asked if anyone had any relatives who fought at the time. My grandfather had fought in WW2 but the lesson was not about the second world war. My friend brought in a picture of his great-great-grandfather with his wife.
A girl also brought in a picture of her great-great-grandfather with his wife. The teacher said they looked similar. She put them side by side and looked utterly shocked, we gathered around and it was the same man who had kept his two wives a secret from each other! He had married them both privately. They were cousins and never knew it. I often wondered how that situation turned out.
* THE IMAGE IS A TRENCH SCENE IN WW1.
