I have this great photograph of my Grandpa standing in his Military Camp in Egypt. I had planned for over a week to post it, and I cannot find it. I'm so frustrated!
My grandpa served in World War II for the British Army. I joined the service at 16 years of age. I do not know much, but I do know he did get some medals for WWII & he did serve time in Egypt.
My Grandfather was raised in a orphanage, so when the boys turned 16, they joined the British Army. His mother died at the age of 2, and his father was a bar fighter in Ireland. He wasn't able to raise my Grandpa and his siblings, so they were sent away. Due to his history, I never heard to many stories about his past. He died while I was in middle school, so I never got to ask many questions.
When he died, he was given a beautiful Veteran funeral with an American flag over his casket.
