What’s the story behind this image?
Whilst researching a place to take some images for my next exercise I came across this images on the BBC News website.
It really is a simple image which appears to be a collection of screws and wires. The truth is, however , that it came from the body of a very brave man, Mr Ronald Brown.
Here is the story behind the image
The family of a World War II veteran have found out just how injured he was after about 6oz (170g) of shrapnel was found following his cremation.
Ronald Brown, who died last week aged 94, was injured in an explosion while serving in France in August 1944.
Medics left the shrapnel in his left leg as it was near an artery and thought it was safer.
His family said his only complaint about his injury was when he asked that children did not to sit on his knee.
RIP Mr Brown
