I PAY TRIBUTE TO JACK RANSOM IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS
I was honoured to have the opportunity to pay tribute to Largs resident, Jack Ransom on the floor of the House of Commons yesterday.
Jack celebrated his 103rd birthday last weekend.
He was held as a prisoner of war after being captured in 1942 on the infamous Thai-Burma railway, also known as the Burmese Railway of Death, of which he is believed to be the last living survivor.
I called on the UK Government to join in celebrating his remarkable life and to acknowledge the need for true heroes such as Jack to receive appropriate recognition and honour for the sacrifices they have made to protect the freedoms which we take for granted.
