Grantham Journal letter: War veteran made my day

Have your say

I would like to say thank you to Frank Northing.

I was sat in Costa on the anniversary of D-Day, when an elderly man came and sat near me. After initially saying a quick hello, we got chatting.

I soon discovered that Frank was a war veteran and he shared some of his war memories and stories with me. I felt so privileged to be able to hear his stories and I’m grateful that he took the time to speak to me, even though I’m only 18.

This made me realise and wish that there were more genuine people in the world and I would like to say thanks to Frank as he made my day and taught me loads about D-Day.
