My father was Eric's friend He didn't speak much of about the war but when he retired he bought a caravan in Knaresborough Once when we visited my mam and dad there we went for a meal to the Bay Horse in Goldsborough While we were sat my father seemed to remember all of a sudden that his friend came from this village We went outside to the war memorial and there was the name of Eric Dale Chapman I can only saybthatvit was a very emotional moment and my father told me that he had been killed by a mortar shell in some woods were they were camped and that my father took his place as the lance corporal in the squad It was the only time I heard my father talk about the war. These were very a brave generation who not only gave their lives but those who survived and came home got on with there lives but never forgot even if they couldn't talk about what they saw Thank you to them all
