This beautiful man is my Grandad.
He was killed in action 66 years ago today ( 25 January ) while serving in Italy.
He had spent 3 years in Malta on the anti aircraft guns helping to defend the Island from constant bombing raids. He was told he was going home on leave and put on a ship to England. The ship was turned around for the invasion of Sicily and Italy.
He signed up as a Gunner in September 1939 and left the UK mid 1940. Nanna and my dad never saw him again.
I have cards and photos that they sent each other.
