Cyril

By Franko59
Taken today at the Remembrance Day service in Sheffield. This is Cyril who`s 93 years old!! I always like to speak to the veterans when they have been so kind to pose for a photo. He told me of his exploits in the Army Service Corps and how he was mobbed by the French people when the end of the war came. He is a gently spoken man with wry smile and a twinkle in his eye and that Leslie Phillips moustache is just awesome,,, Thanks Cyril!!Wink

I am not sure how I missed this on the 10th...what a lovely portrait...he looks so good for 95... Bet he could keep us entertained for hours with his war stories....a real hero
A carefully shaved face and a carefully trimmed moustache, that twinkle in the eye has lasted well.

Thanks Cyril.
