    That really is a great story. Thanks for posting the article. It seems that in Britain, the papers do a pretty good job of covering your old veterans. I don't know what kind of circulation the Independent has, but here in the States, unless it's a small local paper, they don't cover anything about old veterans. It's really a shame.

    It is a shame when heroic men die and nothing is said about them in newspapers and other media. Thank goodness for those who do inform us of such EVENTS
    My dentist,Dr. Robert Dernick,'s Father was part of that and slated to go but did not make it out of the tunnel to freedom. I suppose, just as well, since he lived to father,Bob, his son. I do not know if he was an EM or officer.
    The whole story was great, the men, even greater. Bless them all!
