    Whilst looking for something completely different I came across this story.
    Guess whose Dad it is?

    Makes sense.

    I noticed a story written by Paul Reed when I was looking at the Anzio battle last week.

    Even Paul didn't know his Dad was on that site.
    I amazed myself I found out something he didn't know. A first!

    As Owen mentioned I didn't know about this, but I spoke to my father today who thought this had actually been published on my own site, so I have put the same text on there with some additional photos. You can find it here:

    Wonderful account to have of your own dad's experience though!
    The things these blokes did at an age where I wasn't doing much more than stumbling around at free parties never ceases to amaze me.
    Your old man looks kind of 'tough' with the 'tache Paul, Like a boxer in an Ealing comedy.:box2:
