And To My Great Uncle Michael

My fathers mothers brother Michael Peile died in action at El Alamein - flying RAF hit by shrapnel as a soldier. Now I know the manner and the action in which he was involved and died - I am suddenly saddened personally by the loss. It never really touched me before - he was just my grand mothers dead brother, now he's a hero!
Thanks Uncle Michael!
