My Grandad Alexander Watt, WW2 .. Royal Air Force..
I was lucky to see my grandad as a young child as he survived the last War as did my nan, he went on to be one of the most respected Bootmakers in London at John Lobb's the makers for the Royal Family etc.
R.I.P Grandad... always proud I got to meet him :)

Thank for sharing with us :) That's really nice of you. Family should be always at first place and even if somebody pasts away we should keep them in memory.

Corba ... I hear the things you say and you are very right, Wars do drag the innocent in in most cases, and my Grandad never ever recalled his experiences as a Pilot so I guess even though the end was not really the end for some..he just carried on as before as that is all we really want to do in life ..carry on in peace if at all possible. I remember you mentioned your Grandfather in Poland and I know that the Polish are a very proud nation, I wish all Grandfathers well in all countries, they know more than we ever will and I miss mine very much aswell
