Probably unnoticed by many, including myself until I was sent his obituary by post, a real hero passed away in June this year. On reading Bill Speakman’s obituary today , I’m in total awe of his bravery in facing a determined enemy during the Korean War. Also, it illustrates to myself at least, that the term ‘Hero’ should be reserved to those who deserve it most.
