Ray - Search 'Brylcreem the stuff to give to the roots'. It supports Veronica's post on the Ford milk Lorry pic.

Hope he came home safe and sound and had a good life! He's definitely got a twinkle in his eyes!

I always liked the Air Force Uniform, but often wondered how the cap stayed on in such a precarious position!

Ray - A D-Day paradummy was sold yesterday, by a Liverpool auction house - maybe you'd like to look it up. I've never considered what they looked like, but now the auction-house catalogue reveals all. Regards.

Thanks Philip, I had a quick squint on t`internet,and they
appear to be about 15 inches tall. I knew of them,and I have
been to all of the D Day landing beaches. Regards, Ray.

You've been to all the D Day beaches! You're quite a globe-trotter, sir. Keep the pics coming.
