  • Still miss you, but thankful we got to know each other. Your inadvertently long service to two Commonwealth governments grew out of personal necessity but you made the best of your situation and contributed to both services with dedication and skill. They returned the favour by turning you into a half decent pastry chef. British Merchant Navy, Royal Navy, HMS Nelson and HMS Ceylon including Special Forces in Norway and SE Asia, RNZN, part of the Cadre for Black Prince and Royalist transfer, plus service in the Korean War, and all because your family couldn't look after you thanks to the Great Depression.
    Public - James David - Other relative - 24 April 2017
