Iama WW2 Veteran
Hello reddit i am a WWII veteran, I have done this Iama again after my grandson saw a request for WWII Veterans. I am 89, born on 5/11/1924 in Eastbourne,Sussex. I fought for the British Army in the Royal Hampshire Regiment during the final years of WW2. while my Regiment was on the way to Burma we got redirected to Palestine where we spent several weeks fighting in Jungle gear and Jungle Carbines. I was a teenager during the Battle of Britain and grew up during the Great Depression. I moved to New Zealand in 1953. I can also answer some questions about WWI as my father fought there in every major Battle on the Western Front under the Royal Engineers. Ask me anything. Proof: Me now and In my army uniform with my family just before iwl was deployed. http://imgur.com/CXyvb http://imgur.com/64d6v

Edit 2: Sorry if i take awhile to reply Grandpa has just gone to sleep so keep the questions coming and thank you guys so much for showing an interest and Grandpa says thank you aswell.
Edit 3: Sorry my Grandfather is 88 not 89 sorry for my mistake. I will get to answering questions as soon as he wakes so sorry if you get your replies tomorrow but i will answer everyone of your questions. Also if you wont proof it may be awhile so look at my other IAma and it contains proof.
Edit 4: Thank you reddit so much i look forward to answering your comments tomorrow. I apologise if some of what my Grandfather says is offensive he comes from a different time and is not brainwashed its just how most of his generation and culture viewed things at the time.
Edit 5: we are going out now we will try to answer all of the questions tomorrow or Monday at the latest thank you so much fir showing an interest and thank you for being so patient, i didnt think that he would be asked this many questions it is really good.
