Sheila Keath FosterI have this photo of Dad in uniform (THA?) that you may have seen in one of my FB albums. I know he was very upset about not being allowed to join up. However, his best friend was killed in North Africa, as were many South African soldiers, so I personally am glad he could not. I was a small child at the time he and Mom got the news of
'Uncle' Arthur's death and I can still remember every detail of the scene when they got the news, and can picture it even today. Will post on your page Alan.
