I'm working on some family genealogy and I've run across a phrase that I'm unfamiliar with. I thought my friends here might be able to help me understand. It's about a soldier who died in World War I in 1920. He was from Stalybridge, England. It says he's "gone to the soldier's west". What does this refer to exactly? Is this a phrase still used there? What do they mean by "west"? Anyone?
