I hope that I shall be forgiven for taking a very sideways step on this prompt of KHAKI. The 1st thing to come to me was the Army, then conflict and the wars of the 20th century. With those thoughts and feelings come my late Father-in-Law who was an amazing man who was in the front line right across Europe in WW2. He worked with the French and Polish pilots. The French gave him a Croix de Guerre in gratitude. When it was over he came home, put his demob case in the cellar and didn't look back, like so many others. He lost count of the pilot friends that he lost but it didn't make him bitter. I met him during the last year of his life and I am honoured that he chose me to talk to about his experiences. I just wish that we had more time! Yes, I have his demob case all intact which I found where he had left it!!!!
Gosh! that turned into an essay, sorry folks! Anyway, I did sidestep the prompt as he was in the RAF so wore blue but I did think it would be nice to have a pic of him in my collection of inchies.
