  2. No matter your part in the effort, say Bletchley etc, at the time no one knows, it's not "movie" heroic but you've done your bit. You're content with that and get on with life afterwards.

    It's good to see, but a pity that it takes so long for that generation to be acknowleged.

    I'm fortunate that my grand-parents(God rest their souls) brought me up mostly, so i heard what it was like from them.

    They have my undying respect as do all the other silent heros and heroines.

    Bless them all.
