A Humbling Day

Tomorrow is my Grandads 80'th Birthday, Today is Remembrance day. We had a lovely dinner with tables full of guests their to celebrate (actually 5 birthdays in November in my family!!) So it is kind of a joint part too, but special this year as we didn't expect Grandad to actually still be here. Anyway one of his best friend came to the party, but I have never met this man before and I couldn't tell you his name, everyone called him Colonel He was sporting loads of medals but one in particular is very humbling, He received a medal from the Prime Minister of France for being one of the first to land at Normandy. Very humbling.
