    Default My dad in the war

    Following poppy day,it got me to have a look at my Dads old papers/documents I found these which related to his & my Grandads WW 1 & 2 involvment.
    The first is my Grandads medical discharge papers from the Royal horse artillery at the age of 21, He always joked he had a metal head , he did in fact have a metal plate in his skull where the injury was,he was also given a war badge [I have the certificate but not the badge] to wear so he was not deemed a coward for being at home.
    The next one I have tried to research what Dad was up to but cannot find anything about even my uncle who was his best mate did not know anything about this.
    The third item gives Dad access to the Essen war trials,I did not even knoe he had gone to that.
    Hope might be of interest to you apologise if its not.

    Wow. When you look at things like that, it makes you realise how lucky we are today.

    Sure, there are things happening in this country and in this world that we hate, and we moan and groan about this and that. But what those men and women went through for us, well, i have the uttermost respect for them.

    Thats something you can pass on for generations and be mighty proud of SHR.


    Snowman, you got your ears on?
