    Report 
  • To my long lost Grandfather, I never knew you and mum was only young when you passed, however we knew you fought in the second world war, that when you returned to our Land you were traumatized and found it difficult to settle back into day to day life again. There have been many grandchildren named after you and in memory of you. You will live in our memories for your bravery and courage. Forever in our memories Grand daughter: Doncur Waltonxxxx
