Wakefield Express have been in touch and they are running a feature all about Grandad’s War and the exhibition, so check out the Pontefract & Castleford Express this week.
As Remembrance Weekend is nearly upon us the exhibition feels more and more like a fitting tribute, not just to my Grandad, but all veterans.
I hope you can come, and learn about just one mans journey through WWII and beyond, it has taught me so much seeing his collection that he so carefully saved, at times this year I have often thought he was waiting for someone to piece it all together one day. The collection and his book, his own story, hasn’t just taught me, but shown me, some of what it was like, for the teenagers who joined up and fought for our freedom today. He says in his book, that he didn’t think about it until at the 60th D Day celebrations in Normandy, when total strangers came up to him, and young children, and they thanked him for their freedom.
Come along and join me, I’ll be there all weekend with a warm welcome. Amanda x
