This is great. The man who fought, his expression and a descendent of a nation he protected.

The old man proudly wearing his medals, and the young girl in uniform with her badges - worlds apart, yet together on this special day.
Splendid tribute Bill

Perfectly timed with the girl's head bowed, Bill. The mantle of responsibility passing from the one generation still in focus to the next, yet to be focused upon.
