Dear Daddy in Heaven......Georgina Chapman

#1
Watched Georgina read her poem to her daddy, killed in Iraq last year. Both times I watched this on the news I was reduced to tears. What a brave wee girl. Her daddy would be very proud. RIP.

Out of touch, overseas and no idea of what this is about. But .....I guess the wee girl is remembering her dad......makes we weep just reading your posts.

RIP for her Dad.

I would like her to read it again, from the floor of the house of commons, she braver than the current occupants.

Very moving and I too developed short term blurriness of vision, same thing happened when Kathryn Nutbeem sang at the Falklands 25 ceremony in June.

If you were to sepia rinse the photograph of Colin Wall's wee boy stood at the wall, you could transpose that image into any of history books about the wars this country fought in during the early to mid 20th century.

Just goes to show that we've learned bugger all since then.

The picture of the son of WO2 Wells,in his school uniform,wearing his Dad's medals,standing beside the memorial,was one of the most moving I have seen.It was in today's Telegraph,but not on their web version.If anyone has it,could they please post it?

It is definitely enough to make a grown man cry because either that, or I had some dirt in my eye walking home from the newsagent this morning...
