What a day with 98 year old Norman Prior
IP: 217.44.243.70




What a day first thing this morning the boiler man called to fix my boiler it turns out the his dad was an LF in the 1st 8th Battalion and we have his photo on our web site there will be more to come on that I have spent the rest of the day with Norman Prior what a man and what stories he tells at 98 he can really tell them he has a great memory he remembers names he served with
I picked him up at his home took him to the museum he has had a portrait photo done then he meet the judges for Bury in Bloom he stole the show 10 minutes talking to Norman and 5 looking at the garden then it was lunch Fish fingers and chips for Norman his choice Then it should have been an half hour interview which we had to stop an hour and a half later so he is going to go back later to finish it to is hoped that we will do an special exhibition on Norman in the Museum if we do you should not miss it.
Next week we are to take Norman to see a Sherman Tank as he was in the 1st 5th Battalion which became 108th Regiment Royal Armoured Corps (Lancashire Fusiliers) They still wore there LF cap badges.
One thing I will never forget as we are turning the corner to the museum he started to sing the Lancashire Fusilier song and as we pulled up at the museum we were both in full flow.
