Its just that a Bill Wright lived close to us in Midlands. My dad died at 69 and never spoke at all about the time in the navy, when he was really ill he had a copy made of his photo with his mom +dad at the Palace at his Investiture for the DSM. He must have wanted us 4 kids to be proud of him, which we were. The war took a lot out of them then they were expected to just get back to normal life at the switch if a button.
PS. Are you Bernard or Bernadette?
