On Sunday at the Yorkshire Wartime Experience, a veteran of the Second World War visited. He didn't come on the Saturday when it was veterans day because he wanted to go to the event on his birthday when he turned 100 years old. As part of his visit, he paraded in a convoy with two Willys Jeeps with his family as passengers. When he came off the main arena, he went past our stand where myself and the guys from the Dunkirk display stood in one line, came to the attention as he passed and clapped. He is from a great generation and one that needs to be celebrated. He fought for the freedom of millions of people. As he passed his daughter said to her children "look what those men are doing for grandad". I don't think there was a dry eye in the place. Very proud to have been a part of it. If you have family who fought in the war, talk to them, get their stories and thank them from me.
This video is one I took at the end of Sunday when the last post was played. For those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, We will remember them.
