Ernie's Silver Wish
99-year-old Ernie’s dreams came true when he made his Silver Wish to get out on the water in Portsmouth, where his military career in the Royal Marines began.
With the help of Ernie’s friend RN Chaplain Keith Robus and the Portsmouth Historic Docks, we made Ernie’s wish come true with a visit to Portsmouth Docks and a boat-trip on the water.
As part of his day out, Ernie was also presented with a new blue beret, his original beret marked his service under King George the sixth and the new one under the current monarch. The only difference being the crown on the emblem.
