IamA grandchild here with my grandad who is a veteran of 47 years in the British army. AMA!
My short bio: So really this Ama is for my grandfather who is with me right now. We did this before on the smaller AMA sub and he fairly enjoyed it. So here it goes.
He joined in 1944 after lying about his age and served a total of 47 years in the army before leaving as a Major. He served in the royal engineers for the majority of those years. AHM (ask him anything!)
