A VETERAN of the Second World War was applauded at a gathering for Peppard Poppy Appeal volunteers for his gentlemanly manners.
Major Ian Page was at the Unicorn Pub in Colmore Lane on Friday to honour Nick Launders, a retired army officer who is stepping down as the appeal
Our [female] reporter was organising a group photograph when Maj Page stood up from his wheelchair to pose. Other urged him to stop using his cane and to sit down again.
He responded: “My mother and father taught me to always stand in front of a lady.”
Everyone applauded as Maj Page remained on his feet. Well done.
