Exhibition & Book Launch Poster

In the final count down to the Exhibition and Book Launch – the work is done, everything has come together nicely and I have been blown away by peoples support, kindness and generosity, not just from friends but also strangers. So a big THANK YOU. have been out today to interview me and the Pontefract & Castleford Express are running a big feature in Thursdays edition which is amazing. I’ve become a Tweeting crazy person and even tweeted @britishmonarchy the other day to tell them about my Grandad’s story – he who served King and country when they needed him the most…and he didn’t let them down. Let’s hope Prince Harry pops round for a pint of John Smiths (not in fancy dress though eh Harry!!).
