Some things are priceless

Today I returned home from Turkey to a lovely surprise, my Veterans Award from the Government on behalf of the Queen. I remember being told about it some months ago and was asked if I wanted a formal presentation which I declined. It would have been by some politician or dignitary and in my view that would have been an occasion more for their own publicity and I didn’t think the theme suited an occasion like that.

I guess we all have periods in our lives which remain fondly in our memories and my time in the armed forces is one of those. Tales of those days will be in my autobiography here on my website between the dates of 1971-1981 but for now I’ll just relish the moment in hand.
