Happy 96th Birthday Denis Healey
Today is the birthday of former Labour Government Chancellor and Deputy Party leader Denis Healey.
This famous picture of Denis is entitled by the BBC as "Denis Healey in a defiant mood".
Hat tip Comrade Rayner.
During the second world war he was the British Landing officer for the amphibious assault at Anzio.
