A message from last year.

We are so excited we can be together as a family, with our dad of 97 years. We have attended the Fort Langley service ever since it’s been held and we won’t miss this one. 

I believe our dad maybe the only WW2 vet left attending this service, so perhaps we could acknowledge him at the service. We as a family, are very much looking forward to this day.

My father is very emotional about attending the service tomorrow. At 97 he is reflecting on what he can of his life, but the memories he has no trouble recalling are the events of the war.

We honour him and others that gave their all to make our world a better place. We have been at the Fort Langley Service since the first one and we are not missing tomorrow. 

Today, We regret the passing of George Kenneth Smith and will miss him and remember his service. Dad achieved the rank of Captain in the RAF during the Second World War. He flew the Tiger Moth, various other training aircraft, the Halifax, the Airspeed Horsa Glider during the invasion of Arnhem nearing the end of the war.
