  1. I don't post much on the forum anymore, personal reasons etc. I'm not sure on re-enacting, does death need to be rerun ? to teach a new generation of the horror of war? I think the losses recently for the sake of a grey men will inform their generation. I've watched living history and reenacts , and to a certain extent i feel uncomfortable, almost embarassed, at some of the overweight Walter Mitte's trying to carry out fire and manouvere :confused: I've seen some very very sad people living in parallel universe's and unfortunately this was War and Peace, but likewise I've met some stars. When it comes down to it I think it involves connection and memory... Sealed knot and like reenact some of the bloodiest conflicts of man, and we just watch, as we have no personal attachment, but WW2 we still have relations who we have heard 1st hand from. As a child I listened to my Uncle, airborne who fought thru Italy then Normandy. Those stories and others mark you and give you a physical link. I feel there is a place to inform, but to rerun battles of which there are still survivors, suffering physically and mentally, I think not necessary. We are meant to be the most intelligent life form on earth What the hell went wrong?? Just my views HF
  2. I don't post much anymore, but this whole sorry saga really extracts it. Brown is just a socialist and a derrier licker nuff said. What always gets me with these bun fights is the Vets are stood rain or shine for the 'dignateries' to arrive who then plonk their fat overfed asses on some plush bit of velvet while men twice their age stand in rank, as they always have done taking the crap from these muppets. About time these grey little politicio's waited, bowed and perhaps handed the drinks to the real Dignateries who gave life, limb, sanity, and freedom for these grey men to play politics and power.

  7. Uncle, BEF then volunteered for 1st Airbourne intake fought all thru Italy etc and then Normandy and Germany, had an appendix the night before his lift to Arnhem... always thought himself a lucky bugger!! Uncle, Tank crew in France, hit badly and ended up in a early plastic surgery for months after. Father to young, but South African rifles just after the war, and some contract work:cool2: Grandfather worked at Vickers and De Havillands involved with Barnes Wallis, very skilled engineer, but never talked much, also was a fire warden. Father in law , Navy worked on ship repair at Alexandria, he too never said much, but you can imagine going thru the ships as they limped in.... It can be quite interesting sarching the family history, mother has traced us back to Irish pig farmers and mad Jocks of the Sutherland clan. What bloody chance did I have:confused::confused::confused: Hardyferret:yay::yay::sweat:
