Would like some help. Forgotten

Frank, or whoever can help. Is there a time limit for writing a response to a topic. Have just been responding to the topic Knife Adge and when I clicked on "Submit" I was asked to sign in again. Clicking the 'sign in' seems to have erased the whole submission.

Re: HIGHWAY ROBBERY

Hi Bill come to PERTH, Western Australia. Here we have no Toll Roads anywhere. I haven't been to Melbourne or Adelaide for some while, so can't comment, but Tolls are in place in Sydney and Brisbane. Sydney Harbour Bridge was finished in 1932 but the Toll is still on the bridge and also the Sydney H...

Re: Steven Hughes

Bill, that was a tremendous eulogy to one who was obviously a very extraordinary man and revered by all who knew him. Well done!!!

Re: An Irish view of Africa !!!!!!

Hi Yall, Bill and Mick. My source for the above submission was telling me that the article was published in Ireland 11 years ago. He then pointed out that this was long before Auntie Angela opened her mouth and that the article was very prescient. As for your solution, Bill, I have held that view fo...

Re: An Irish view of Africa !!!!!!

Hi Yall, I am sorry people, but I don't necessarily believe in this but it does give one pause for thought. As Mick says don't blame the messenger, I just thought you might be interested in what he (the Author) had to say, brutal, callous and harsh as it is. Again sorry. Arnie :oops: :oops: :oops: :...

Re: Museum of Lancashire (14/20th museum north) Preston

Hi Yall, shame it is left to the 'County' Hall to make decisions as atrocious as this one. Besides all the Military History, particularly the 14th/20th King's Hussars history, being lost, there is the wider interest of a great number of people in the History of Lancashire. I don't suppose there is a...

Re: Ex Boy,s RAC memories.

Hi Yall, Mick, good topic, though I didn't do JL, when I had a 'bit' in, I noticed all the lads who had been in, including yourself, were great role models. Bill, I was in the Int Corps when I was approaching the end of my service and they did have resettlement courses run by the RAEC. You have an i...

Re: Re: Bill Bentley

Bill, great questions. In Australia it is the same, 2 thirds women, the men having departed as you say, one way or the other. In our apartment building, which opened for occupancy on 26 Apr 2014 and we moved in on the 27 th, there are 16 apartments, 14 of them two bedrooms and 2 of them are single b...

Re: Bill Bentley

I could count them, but don't dare to, how many jobs I have had, but its well over 30. Thats counting the time in the army as only ONE. When...

Re: Steven Hughes

Hi Bill, did your habit of carrying a penknife pre-date Steve, or was that some of his advice? Sounds like everybody, but particularly Steve deserved a higher medal than an MM. For the bits I know of your activities in the Falklands War, I reckon you definitely deserved more than an MM. Great man ma...

Re: Very Interesting

Bill, saw the film and it was too "Hippie" for my liking, so naturally the book was bypassed. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
