Re: is anyone still alive

Hi John and all, interesting question: 'is anyone still alive ?'... Ask again in a year or two :shock:. My two penneth on the European/ US/ World disaster: I still think that the West, backed by the USA and fronted by Europe, unreasonably provoked Russia by militarily (NATO) constantly creeping ever...

Re: round and round

Ah, John, John, how right you are "Being a grumpy old git", though I have to agree ;) . In Hermany, recently, an old codger was arrested for puncturing the tyres of stupidly parked cars. His big mistake was to always do it along the same stretch of road at the same time of day... Most of t...

Re: round and round

You should try living in Spain. Heading through town to the main free car-park, I and many others had to squeeze past a delivery van double parked. Well, theirs is a hard life I thought. An hour or so later, on my way home, the twat was still there. I wonder which Senorita he was delivering it to :r...

Re: Ken Davies

I remember Ken well from Lulworth, where we were both Corporals before he got promoted to Sergeant. There was always something distant about him, though we got on well enough. Was it not the fantasy of every Junior Leader, of every soldier, through the ranks, to one day reach the rank of Lt. Colonel...

Re: For what it's worth

My thanks to those who have posted feedback on this thread. I have also had a lot of direct feedback too and it's all positive ;). The main reason that I wrote it, then distributed it free by the quickest means possible, was to make people aware of the brutal reality of war, which it seems we may al...

For what it's worth

There are also multiple references to my time with the 14/20KH etc.. I have already sent a PDF copy out to many a pal and I hope they enjoy reading it ! If you...

Re: This Russia Ukraine Crisis

Hi Pinky, didn't somebody get their hand slapped for suggesting that "all lives matter" ? The very crux of my own jargon was that the environment will suffer perhaps irreparable damage should war break out. And Corona is just a bug that we learn to live with or die with it rather than beca...
