Remembrance

Royal_British_Legion's_Paper_Poppy_-_white_backgroundToday I’m linking back to something I posted exactly a year ago. It is my way of saying ‘thank you’ to all those brave young men and women who contributed to bringing peace to Europe during my childhood.

I also have in my mind thoughts of the hundreds of thousands of civilians who died in bombing raids on both sides of the English Channel, they were all as much victims of Adolf Hitler’s insane philosophy as those who died in the gas chambers and concentration camps.

For the record, the names of the six other men who accompanied my father to their collective deaths are:

Pilot: Flt. Lieut. Andrew Crawford Harding, DFC, RCAF, Galetta, Ontario, Canada

Navigator: Flt Lieut. Edward John Clement, DFC, RAF, Gorseinon, Glamorgan, Age 22

Air Bomber: Flt. Lieut. James Hough, DFC, RAF, Glasgow, Age 33

Air Gunner: Pilot Officer Terence John Patrick Walsh
