    i have read this book and it is a story of a very brave and courageous young man. Franks account of his early life in Ushaw Moor and Canada is very moving, homesickness on his arrival in Canada as his friends returned to England. His wartime experiences where he went through the thick of the push from Normandy into Germany. A great man like millions of others during the last war. In his book he does not blow his own trumpet just relates facts as they happened. I will watch the vidoe later today as I do not have time at the moment. One fact that shone out in his book was that Frank was a very Christian man and he was also influenced in his younger days in Ushaw Moor by Vicar Welby who was the priest at St. Lukes.
