Jack was a WWII veteran and left school at an age of 14 in 1938 . Today (15th February) we were lucky enough to have Jack come and visit our school and tell us more about our topic , WWII. At the age 18 he decided to join the Royal Air Force and volunteered as aircrew . He trained as an air gunner for 12 weeks, then went into the war , then came home after 3 years and went into a family business. His food was rationed like everyone else and he still loves to keep in touch with his aircraft friends . Today he brought in many different World War II artifacts and pictures , he even brought in a gun bullet !!!!!!! We are so grateful that we had this first-hand experience and this has made use think more about the war and how dangerous it can be and how much effort that people like Jack have put into the war to save our lives . Thank you Jack for your effort saving our lives and thank you for coming to school ! by Emma A .
