At 0300 today, 66 years ago, the 'Athenia' was sunk, the first in a long list of Merchant ships lost during the Second World War.

Fittingly, today is Merchant Navy Day, so if any ships or public building don't have a Red Ensign at half mast, remember and get onto them about it! I will!

Sadly, most people don't even know what the Merchant Navy was and is, never mind what a Red Ensign looks like...

(Sad)

John,
I'm flying out on Tuesday to Los Angeles, to join the 'British Pioneer' in Long Beach.
After that we're off to Basra, Iraq.
Should only be doing 4 months this time (hopefully), so should be back in January.
