  • Still miss you Grandad. Thank you for telling me so many of your war stories and your adventures in Egypt in the tanks (and looking for scrolls in the tombs!). Your incredible close calls, fixing things under pressure and playing the piano accordion to keep spirits up.Your reminiscing of going out with the pardrae, after the shelling stopped, to pick up the dead will always humble me but your wise words of pausing...as you can no longer help... avoided your own death by undetonated shells on more than one occasion.You came home and became an incredible father and grandad, you had patience, humour and amazing talent playing the organ.Grandad you had to extend your shed to fit your pipe organ and I remember you playing it at night and it’s melody would drift over to where I slept.You could cobble together all sorts of stuff from nothing.You loved your vintage cars and motorbikes.I miss you
