Re: MAX SIMON

Bob,

what luck you had, getting things 'first hand' from a person of Max's calibre. After all of his adventures it is remarkable that he lived to be 94. May he now rest in peace, job done !

Re: Kipling, Europe and Brexit

On the two Tony's, Tony Binns, I think that you have it pretty well summed up, as far as anyone can read between the lines. The biggest problem is our own people, everyone wants immediate results but that's hardly ever realistic. Being a self-sufficiency farmer I am well aware that you reap what you...

Re: There but not there

27, that's what I was thinking, a couple of Guidon Sgt. Majors, smart as 10 ! With sabers to fillet any undesirables ... that's why I am wary of attending ... somebody might recognize me :wink: . Anyway, which of us would fit into our old Nr. 1's ? Tony, that would be nice, you know how to reach me ...

Re: Steven Hughes

Bless you Rick, it is important to remember ! You are right I don't do facebook etc.. Thanks for the other link.

Re: Steven Hughes

Hi guys, I've been very busy of late, not least in doing the right thing for my old buddy Steve. On Friday I read the following Tribute, which I had also written, in the Falklands Chapel in Pangbourne College.

Re: knife's edge

Mick, very well put, I guess that 'we the people' were always at the wrong end of the stick. I also recall a story, about a young recruit, on his first day in camp, strolling across the parade square, when the RSM accosted him.

Mark Field

Mark Field has had to apologize for ‚mishandling‘ a young woman protester who, as part of a large scale Green Peace, save the planet, action, had tricked their way into a private function in the Mansion House. What a disgusting situation. Where is our understanding of right and wrong ? Mark Field wa...
