covid rules mean that cannot be a big funeral …… maybe some of the grandchildren (and their spouses) wont be able to attend ……...

 

sorry if some find comments like that offensive at this time but he's had a good innings …...

He was a very very old man.

 

Whilst I'm not too fond of the idea of monarchy, it is sad for his poor missus, who is also very old and appears to still be fairly compos mentis for a lady of her age, and also for his family.

I love the Queen being referred to as his 'poor old missus'. Don't know why that tickled me. One is amused

I'm not a massive royalist but this is still gutting. 

 

Its still someone's Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great Grand Father. 

 

He fought in the war and has been an unbelievable aid to his wife for 73 years. His early years were fascinating and he is a very interesting man. It's definitely worth 30 minutes of your time to read up about him if you are not aware of  his early years. 

Fought all the way through the 2nd world war in some of the most dangerous naval theatres.

It's amazing (yet hardly surprising) just how ready all the news site were for this. Shed loads of ready prepared articles and obituaries. Somebody must have been sat there just waiting to press "publish" for a couple of years now
