My Grandfather served in France from 1914 until the end of War 1 and survived both battles of the Somme. He then served in the Homeguard in WW2. My father served in the RAF for 38 years and I served with the RAF for 12 years. My Grandfather was my hero, but never talked about his experiences. He died before I could take him back to France. I brought two poppies, one for my father and one for myself.
