One had his birthday in the tiny slot where you didn't do either war.
Buy as a volunteer fireman he was deployed to London before the blitz.
After that his crew spent most of 42-45 "tidying up" the wrecks of friendly bombers that didn't quite make it home.
He had the worst case of PTSD from all his generation, including ones who'd flown ops, and gone toe to toe with the Japs and the Hun.
The other one was in the Royal artillery.
First under home command, then under the Royal West African Frontier Force and finally the Indian army
I wonder which "side" Mr Tebbit considers the Fire Service, RWAFF and Indian Army.
