This is my Dad, a photo of a photocopy of a photo, so apologies for the poor quality of the image.

He was in the Medical Corps in ww2. He served in Italy, Africa, the Far East, and he had a George medal but I don’t know what he did to obtain it. The George medal was issued for brave acts outside of combat situations. He would not talk about the war much, it was clearly very traumatic and upsetting.  In this photo he is in his uniform. Dad was 55 when I was born.
