Thread: Grandad 67 years ago

  1. #1

    Default Grandad 67 years ago

    25th January 1944. The day Nanna and my dad lost my grandad.

    He was killed in action in Italy after spending 3 years defending Malta from the constant air attacks.

    A good old ' Scottie Roader '

    67 years on Grandad and I still remember. Never to be forgotten.

    Remember them all, those who fought, died, worked and lived through the wars.

    Save their story before its gone.

    Thanks for posting Spike. That is a brilliant site - and I've visited it quite a few times, very sad - but equally important. I have an older friend who has various stuff her dad sent her during the war and I told her about your "save the story before it's gone". She is now doing her dad's story in a proper book so that her grandchildren and future generations can read the story and see the stuff she has kept all these years.

    Very fine, Spike! Important, as you note, to remember their contributions, not only because they were our family but for what they did for all of us.
