Lest we forget.

May I pose a question please gentlemen?

Why should the event of today's date, 47 years ago, be of particular, sad significance to deck cadets serving their time with EDs twixt '52 and '61.

My pleasure, Pat, pleased you enjoyed and that those tears were, I sincerely hope, 'happy ones'?

Fair comment Tony.

The thing that makes me laugh is that by the time you worked out a good, five position line 'star' cross, you weren't exactly where you'd just calculated. The frequently...

Looking at your CV you've certainly lived an interesting life. What made you opt for Canada as your, I presume, 'permanent' home?

Fair comment

You are 10 years my senior, 'S', so our wartime years were somewhat different and I certainly had no intention of 'slurring' Gracie, it was just that Vera had a rather special birthday.

My pleasure, Nick and pleased to hear it's yours too. The 'countdown' has begun, less than 48 hours to VL Day with VE Day following in less than 2 months. Somehow I feel the two are synonymous.
