Gordon Young said, “I hope this will lead to kids of the exact age getting together. A gathering of kids would be a way of remembering him and contributing to the remembrance of the world war. He was a hero – but just a kid.” Albert French Day is an annual event held on 15 June every year at the Milton Keynes Rose and all are welcome.
