I sat in stunned silence with tears welling in my eyes as I read this, thank you for the RR.

I sat there thinking of my Father now deceased who served in the Second world war and other places, My uncle who served in the S.O.E. now deceased, my brother who served in Northern Ireland and myself a Falkland vet. None of use never spoke about what we did,

As a child I could never understand why my father would not talk of where he had been, and after serving I knew why and I also knew it did'nt matter, but I also knew we simply did not have the worlds to express what we wanted or needed to.

You Sir have done that, simply and with eloquence that none of my family or I could ever muster, for that I am eternally grateful

Thank you

cheers Spud
