Dear Editor

Thank you all for the work, contributions of all who have had and are sharing their experience at sea and at home.

I am an ex-merchant seaman and look back with pride.  At nearly 86 I have plenty of time to recall many memories of the U-boats across the Atlantic.  They seem to stick very vivid.

It is very cold in Yorkshire so I will settle down and enjoy my New Horizons.

Even the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been in touch with us all.  This shows we are not forgotten.

Many thanks for all your kind words.
