Still warm farewell to war veteran
- It promised to be a sad farewell to the 92-year-old British war veteran Tom Bryan.
The veteran had only four surviving relatives who could be at his cremation ceremony. But thanks to a call from his cousin on Facebook- it was shared about a thousand times- there are four hundred people gathered on Tuesday off.
Bryan fought during World War II, a way out of a Japanese prisoner of war camp, where he witnessed many atrocities. Cousin Tony Budgett found that his uncle had given a respectful farewell. And that was Bryan.
