I grew up hearing about Charles as Dad who was younger than him idolised him. He of cause was not a full brother but to Dad he was his hero. He died long before I was born but Dad never got over the loss of his brother and would tell us about him, that is why I feel so much for him as a uncle. Today my nephew so proudly wears Uncle Charles's Medals on the dawn parade.
