We rightly honour those who were in the armed services in WW1 and 2, but what of those heroes who couldn't go (too old, too young, ill health, reserved occupations) who, nevertheless contributed to the war effort.
My Kiwi grandfather, Arthur Cox, was a railway engineer and it was a reserved occupation, so he couldn't go.
My Aussie grandfather, Vivian Roy Trenerry, had diabetes. So he joined the Home Guard. At night, he used to sit on top of the Department of Education Building in Kippax St Sydney, noting the Japanese aeroplanes that came over.
Who else has relatives of "Dad's Army" who they would like to honour?
