Everything began to flash in front of me:
The baubles we put up on the Christmas tree.
Hanging up the holly on the front door with Jim.
Receiving the amazing present from Aunt Kate.
Eating the berries from Farmer Tony’s field.
The nights I spent outside just staring at the stars.
The fireworks for the New Year and finally… an eye blinking.
The last one completely confused me but I had no time to question it as I took one last look at my childhood before stepping into the tank and leaving for war.
