George Gurnsey in WW2 uniform

Fred, George's son, recalls: 'During the War George had to join the army (he was 56 years old) and was given the rank of Sergeant in the Royal Corps of Signals, but was allowed to remain in Dover doing the same work he had done as a civilian. He was offered a promotion to Warrant rank but refused because it would have meant moving away from Dover. So he and Amy remained in Dover through all the bombing and shelling – surely no other serviceman had to go through such an experience for such a long period!'
