One of my prized possessions.
I have in my possession a Bible that is almost 100 years old, I know this because it mentions the Middle East as the Levant. The term Levant hasn't been in use since the mid 1920's.
I have another set of books that are about the same age; these books are about the Great War. They are the only things I have to remind me of my grandfather who fought in World War 1 with the East Yorkshire Regiment.
The only thing I have to show for my six years in the Royal Air Force, other than being disabled from a sporting injury is a burned piece of metal that once was a General Service Medal. My medal became a chunk of worthless metal in a fire two years ago.
