Good to hear. BTW did you know that this well known photo, is actually Jacks brother Ernest.
At the time, there was no photos of Jack for the newspapers to use so they dressed Ernest in his brothers uniform and a myth was created...full story in May's edition of Britain at War magazine.

I didn't know that either John........only ever saw this well known photograph and the paintings.

Good articles Ian.
