"Veteran WWII Submariner Visits Modern Royal Navy"


War Hero

"...Mr Huckle joined the Royal Navy at age 17 in 1941. He said he remembers the exact date because the next day the Japanese retaliated by bombing Pearl Harbour."

He joins the mob so the Nips attack the Sceptics ..... :)
My RAF father always said he won the war. The Japanese surrendered three days after he arrived in India but they kept him out there for another two years just to make sure.
