Dad in Greatcoat. His brother Rod in full ceremonial.
Dad meets the Queen. Adelaide Town Hall. S.A. Guards Association.
My father has written a lengthy account of his experiences in the Grenadier Guards. He presents the story along with fascinating photographs of Anti-tank guns in the Egyptian desert and Queen Elizabeth's coronation. In fact while in Germany with the Grenadiers, Dad bought a fine German SLR camera which he used to good effect. His writing is very descriptive but combined with these pictures he is able to recreate the past as if it happened yesterday. His story is so voluminous we have had to break it into 3 parts and put groups of photographs on their own pages, linked to the text with clickable thumbnail pictures. The reader can digress to the photos and then will be returned to the same location in the text to continue the story.
