You've done a great job with the photo's there, Danny. Your grandfather certainly deserves all the accolades there are for his heroics on February 6th 1958-and all the terrible memories that he must've lived with ever since. And I'm sure all on here agree. I'll also put a link to this in the main United section so then more posters will see it. (Y) Keep up the great work.

I have looked into the knighthood and i believe someone of stature or a member of parliment has to put a name forward for it to be recognised, they say that anyone can put forward his name but im not sure if it would be notcied as much?
You would have to speak with your MP. Do you want me to look into it for you?

It would have to be your grandads MP, (remind him an election is coming up and Harry is presumably very popular where he lives ;) )

Well like my brother and Mum I have been a member on this forum for some time now and have only really ever been on to read and admire the amazing words and memories that you have all placed on here about Harry Gregg, as I have never really had anything more to say than what Danny and my mum have said (although as they will probably tell you thats a 1st!!) however I recently decided to write a poem about my grandad, I cant explain why, I just think it came into my head as I have been over to see him recently and I really wanted to share it with all the people that hopefully may appreciate it! I havent shown it to my grandad yet, as I felt weird showing him something that was about him :) however hopefully in time he will get to read it and know how proud we are of him.....So here it is:-

They call the man a Hero, but he said you'd do the same?
But how many of you can admit you'd run into a burning plane?
The bravery, the courage, the outstanding selfless act,
is clearly more than most would do, I know that for a fact!
So raise your glass in honour, to a man who feared his life,
to save the lives of others, a baby and a wife!
This man Im proud to say is more than that to me,
My grandad hes the best, my Hero for eternity!

Kel, thats a wonderful poem and I think we all appreciate fully the senitments behind it. Your grandad is much loved by United fans around the world and you should tell him that (but I suspect he knows that already!)

If you feel the urge to write anymore please dont hesitate to share with us.

Oh and your grandad will love to hear it or read it when you show it to him, trust me :clap:
