Photo reprinted from the story above ...

He was an inspiration to me with my own military career and was always giving me advice and encouragement and keen to learn what i had been assigned to and the outcome. On the outside he was of a mild and placid likeable nature but what lay beneath is all too well known. Courage and bravery came as second nature. Due to his injury,he spent his life in and out of Military hospital having his foot constantly re-pinned.
He and my Auntie Pat (his wife) were housed courtesy of the government for services to his country until his passing in 1990 in a bungalow in Gravesend.
To me, his legacy is priceless. RIP
