My Grandad

This story is not Public Domain. Permission must be obtained before any part of this story is copied or used.

My name is Shelley Vaisey and I have been researching my family history for many years, but only recently my grandads time during WW2, and the years spent as a FEPOW in Burma and Thailand.

If my grandad had been alive today, 15th June 2022, he would have been his 100 years old today.


Grandad this is my birthday present to you with all my love.
