This brave soldier not only shares my fathers surname who survived the Second World War but has an uncanny resemblance to my father, who was shot but survived.

He has since passed and I have his medals and picture in my study.

Lance Corporal Alexander Peter Stockham
Royal Fusiliers, The London Regiment, WW2 1939 - 1945

Two heroic soldiers, Two wars, years apart. God Bless Them.
