This is old news!

There are fewer than 300 guys still alive.
Most of the people applying are the children, sometimes on behalf of elderly widows.

"O Lord, when thou givest to thy servants to endeavour in any great matter, grant us also to know that it is not the beginning but the continuing of the same until it be thoroughly finished that yieldeth the true glory; through Him who for the finishing of thy work laid down his life, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."

I've got one of them.

Better start looking in to applying for him.

Of course, I would never have known he was on the convoys if a bloke up the pub hadn't told me! Is it any wonder I grew up furtive?
