Someone I Would Like To Have Met.

My Uncle, Cyril Cave, was listed as missing in action on November 18, 1944. Unfortunately he was later reported to have presumed to have met his death while serving on H.M.S. Warspite. He saw service at Dieppe and Salerno and also at Normandy on D. Day.
I didn't get to meet him but his brother, my Uncle Charlie, who is now in his 90's, often talks to me about him and says how proud he is of him.
