From the attic #1

I've been looking through my dear, departed father's papers, two and a half years after his death. I've found his Army record of service and it brought a smile of pride to my face when I saw the judgement on his war service first as a gunner and latterly in the special forces, in the Long Range Desert Group

DEUS, QUI nos patrem et matrem honorare praecepisti: miserere clementer animabus patris et matris meae, eorumque peccata dimitte: meque eos in aeternae claritatis gaudio fac videre. Per Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum filium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.
