Appreciation For William Yates By Clair Hart

Steve Yates or My Granddad as he is better known is so dearly missed by friends and family, he was a true Gentleman and it makes me so proud to read his stories of his time in the Ghost Squadron and his heroics during WW2. I know that he is looking down over us all, and he will be so excited about the arrival of his second Great Grandson, I can hear him now getting his 'bootiful' comments ready.
We love you Granddad and miss you dearly.
Love you x
