image for Colonel Saunders, 102 given freedom of city
A wartime photo of Lt. Col. Saunders

A 102 year-old veteran, Lt. Col. Frank Saunders was awarded the Freedom of the City in a ceremony held in Stirling Castle today. The ceremony included veterans who served in many campaigns last century and also current personnel along with parachute displays and a flypast by an RAF Tornado.

However, the officer [who doesn't like chicken by the way] has been a well-known grouch for many years said to me, "Although it's a great honour to recognise me this way, it's a bit bloody late for me now; just look at me, I can hardly walk, let alone get round the city and I can't get my scooter on the Park & Ride buses either.

"To be honest, I think the council are taking the 'Michael' and all because I complained about some councillor's Leylandii hedge next door to me. I reckon they're fed up of me and want to finish me off as soon as possible.

"At 102, it's quite obvious I haven't got long, but I swear I will go down fighting.

"They reckon that I have lost my marbles, but I have not lost that Bulldog Spirit!"

Make Dr Jekyll's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
