No introduction needed, as papers and other media will fully report it today. Quite an inspiration to all during Covid. I might also mention a Private Joseph Hammond age 95 of Accra, another Burma veteran of WWII. Said to be a former member of the King's West Africa Rifles (via the Gold Coast Regiment) said to be the last surviving member of the 55, 000 soldiers from Ghana who served there? He helped support the fund-raising efforts.
