    Just seen this article about a 97 year old chap called Mel Wallace. Hero

    He has been given France’s highest military honour which he has accepted on behalf “of all the men who didn’t come home”.

    Reminds me of a mate, Bill Smith, who played darts with Anne and me in our local pub. Now dead many a year he surprised us one evening when he became very sentimental about his mates in the army in WWII. He said that he was devastated when he broke an arm training for “something big” as it was known at the time. He missed D-Day and numerous friends of his were killed during the landings. He always said that he should have been there!

    RIP Bill :rose:
