70 years ago today my Grandad was on one of the first ships across the channel on a minesweeper. Like many he never talked about the war, except once. When asked if he wanted to go France for D-Day. His response 'No I bloody don't my memories of that awful day was dragging the wounded, dying, dead & parts of men out of the water'. He was 20 yrs old at the time.
R.I.P to all those that gave thier lives so we could live ours.
Poppy, 2 years since I last saw you, still miss you so much, love you always

People always ask me why I joined the Army, It so in my opinion I am doing something to prevent anything like that day happening again, and to remember my Grandad,

Jim Wheller, I still remember you and keep your diary and Medals close may you Rest In Peace
