Derick Maynard

Victor Maynard was known to his family as "Jackie" I never knew my Uncle as he was KIA in August 1944, and I was born in November of that same year. The main story I remember growing up , is hearing about how my grandmother had kept a locket his hair before he left. Apparently he was the only one of her sons that she did this for. I guess in her heart she felt that once he left out that door , she would never see him again. A story that breaks our hearts every time I hear it.
