Default Well done that man

Well done that man

Quote:
Eddie Wadsworth is not like other charity collectors.

The 85-year-old has converted his mobility scooter into a tank - complete with a gun turret and cardboard rockets.

Mr Wadsworth now trundles around Swadlincote, in Derbyshire, playing rousing military music and collecting for the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

He said he wanted to do something for the charity to repay the kindness he received from the town's branch of the charity when his father John was killed in action in World War Two.

Nice one, Jim. Indeed, very well done. It's a great way for Eddie Wadsworth to not only honor his late father but also the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.


It's also a great reminder to school age kids of the sacrifices made by everyone In England not to mention ordinary people who became extraordinary citizens and hero's.



Sir Douglas Bader comes to mind.
