proud daughter

After the Liberation of Guernsey our States give every child who had stayed here
during those five years and was still at school an Liberation Medal 
This one is my Fathers, sadly we lost him 7 years ago.

 So I thought that it was only appropriate that I wore it for the
70th Anniversary Celebrations in memory of him.
(well you cant get more local than that can you? A Liberations Medal on a Guernsey!)

And it made it on to my 1940's fancy dress for our float as well. The Cavalcade was brilliant fun to be part of, there were about 20,000 people in town waving and cheering, that's a third of the whole island!!!!. But huge respect to the Queen, 1 was exhausted after all that waving and grinning!
