Charles Percy's Story

I never knew my grandfather, but my father tells me he was 4 brothers, all of whom signed up, served at the Front and remarkably all of whom came home safely. My grandfather never discussed his experiences of the war, although we know he was wounded and suffered shell shock. In WW2 he served as an ARP warden. Served in RMLI 1913-1922
