Pendle War Veteran To Judge Competition
Roy joined the RAF in 1939 after the outbreak of World War 2 and served in West Africa and the Middle East. His father fought in the First World War.
On his appointment to the panel of judges, Roy said: "I am really pleased to have been asked to judge this competition. I enjoy reading and think that anything that encourages people to be creative is a good idea - especially if they can show an appreciation of wider things going on in the world."
The War Poetry Competition is a good opportunity to remember the sacrifces that have been made and continue to be made to this day."
