The brave soldier

As Henry celebrates 91 powerful years of life, he receives a birthday card from his family in Germany.

Henry has called both England and Germany home, and now spends his time at Canwick House. A surviving prisoner of war, Henry fell in love with a British woman and had a long and fruitful life as an engine driver.

Trains continue to fascinate him to this day and he enjoys reading about them in his native German tongue. He enjoys receiving visitors, especially when they come along with chocolate treats.
