God bless them all.R.I.POld mate of mine was only just old enough to go to war. Hadn't long passed out of the Paras.
An absolute gentleman, and 100% warrior. Was very glad he was beside me a few times in the 90's.

My ex brother in law told me a few times about a family he knew where both sons went like that, the last bit you have typedKnew a few that went over to there 2 brothers beforehand were outgoing funny life in their eyes etc, went round there house( their mum was my mums childhood friend) a year or so after the war and they'd left the army and they were clearly fucked eyes soulless depressed more aggressive etc imagine many more leave the forces like that especially if they have been in battle.
