In the past few years Dad has had a number of cancerous lesions removed from his scalp and cheek.

When the first one reared its ugly head the doctor asked if he had ever spent prolonged time in the sun.

Initially he said 'no' but then thought of his Royal Navy service in the Indian Ocean in the second half of WW2.

The doc told him that that would have been enough to cause him problems over sixty years later.

Dad was ninety-five last week and thankfully has not had anymore trouble for about three years.
