Max was called up in WWII and spent his service in the East Yorkshire Regiment has an infantry soldier. Seeing action in Dunkirk, North Africa and Normandy and Eastern Europe.
Today of all days I thought it proper and right that I uploaded this image in memory of not just Max but all those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our present day freedom. Old soldiers don't die they fade away. Sadly Max faded away in 2002 (he was in his 80s). Rest in peace Max and all the others who I have known, who are no longer with us.
