Beth, I'm so sorry for your loss. Bunny was a strong brave man surviving his imprisonment in Japan. I think the last time I saw him, I was just a little girl. He always went up on the hill for the cows in the morning. I wondered why he was wearing a white shirt. By the end of the day he was joined up with the Royal Rifles. He was only 15. He was always a nice guy. Ahero has his reward now. Grace Vautour Shaw
