At Ease Soldier
When I asked my Dad for an object of sentimental value, he had no hesitation in handing me his grandfathers war medals. My great grandfather was a hero to my Dad, and although he refused to discuss the war with him, or anyone for that matter, he was the main reason that my father joined the RAF. To this day no one knows much about what he did in the war, but from the medals its clear he served in both Italy and Africa.
