As a postscript to the excellent Armed Forces Day held recently on the Strand, I would like to thank the Journal and, in particular, photographer Simon Horn for the images he produced of the day.
My 90-year-old father-in-law lives back in the Midlands and is a proud veteran who is aware of what a good show Exmouth puts on for days such as this.
He asked if we could take some photographs and send them on to him.
Here at Franklins we knew we would hardly have a minute to spare to do justice to the colour and pageantry on show.
So we asked Simon if he could help out. Well he gave us some marvellous images, which we forwarded to Dennis Shaw, formerly of the Eighth Army.
Again, Simon, thanks for your help, you made an old soldier a very happy man.
