      Thank you Bernard85 for your lovely words. I love this photo of him, its what drew me into the world of WW2Talk. He was a happy go lucky lad from all accounts. The family were not aware of his story until recently, but are all very proud he was one of our own. His name lives on in the younger generations that have surprised me in their interest and respect.
