    Make time today to remember those who served.

    My Dad with some other bloke. He served in the RAF from 1936 to 1955, flying Lancasters in WW2. He died from lung cancer aged 61 in 1982.

    Sir Anthony Eden perhaps, looks reasonably like him.

    My Dad was also the Army Air Corps- Eighth Air Force in fact.
    However, he was a Dentist, a group with very low casualties.
    He served in England (and France) and retuned from the War
    with a length of hand-loomed tweed which he had made into
    a Balmacaan overcoat. No surprise that I am a member of Style Forum.
