In just over two years I hope to be taking my two daughters to France to celebrate the 100 year anniversary for the battle of Vimy Ridge 9 April 1917 as part of their Canadian heritage.

I will also be honouring mine, as one grandfather was transporting troops in Southern England in preparation for D-Day, another was in charge of all logistics for North Africa, Greece, Italy and the Med. My great Uncle was a Lancaster bomber pilot for one tour, then re-upped for the Pathfinders, first in Lancs and then Mosquitoes; his wife was a Bombe operator/instructor girl at the English code breaking facility at Bletchley Park.

As a Royal Marine with combat in the Falklands at just over 17 years old, where we also made an amphibious assault against a defender, but 12,000 kms away from the white cliffs of Dover. I won't get into the rest of my adventures. I don't take any offence at your sons stance. I just enjoyed it for what it was, and I wish him a very long life.:)

Cheers
Tony

Tony, my brother...
That wasn't my son.... they are older... this young man, however, got my attention.

Yes, it was all the world, working against EVIL! God bless them and us all.

I hope you all get to make the trip...

This was a wonderful video and so heartwarming to see the values that this young man possesses. There is hope for the world.
