VE Day

In your charity, pray for the repose of the souls of my great grandfather, William Doloughan, who served in the Home Guard in WWII and in a mounted regiment in WWI, for my paternal grandfather, Norman White, who served in a tank division in Mesopotamia in WWI and in London in WWII, and for my maternal grandfather, Herbert Edward Burkett who served in the US Air Force and flew missions from England over to France.

Requiescant in pace.

My late uncle (and godfather) drove a tank in General Patton's army at the Bulge. The rest of his crew was killed in that battle, but he came through the war without a scratch.
