Allow me to indulge today VE Day. My father Eric was fighting in WW2 at the grand age of 16, having lied about his age because he wanted to fight.

My day was spent thinking of him and all those brave, quiet individuals who fought through hell and back and then came home to get on with it

Expecting no thanks and no fanfare but just the knowledge they had done right by King and Country.

Thank you Dad and wish you were still here. XXX
