Re: Just an enquiry?

Yippee! this is more like it. Down to earth discussions, creating ideas and putting them forward for all to see and cogitate over. We have a selection of all sides of the spectrum. I am glad to see that whatever side you are all on, servicemen and women, and veterans are always at the forefront of y...

Re: Just an enquiry?

Hi Yall, I too look in every day. My opinion is that Age is simply a number and that you are as old as you imagine you are. I and the wife are in a retirement village and I volunteer (I know NEVER volunteer) and drive what is called the 'Junibug', a 6 seater Golf Buggy. I drive around the village pi...

Just an enquiry?

When is the wake being held for the Great NOAHs Arc?? I know that everyone now uses Facebook but I thought we were all multi-taskers, why let NOAHs Arc die, which it seems to have done??

Re: the last post

Bodge, heard the story before and it is a very poignant one. There is however some controversy about it being found in the dead soldiers pocket. Might add that as far as I know its only the Yanks who are debating its origins. Still a very moving piece.

Re: The state of Germany and civilization.

Hi Yall,
What about an Itexit? If all do it, this will be followed, hopefully, by an Isexit or a Musexit, as they all flee back to the s...holes from whence they came.
Get off your soapbox Arnie!!!!!

Re: Living History !

The following might be remembered by some of the 'Old Sweats' who were in Benghazi, and it involves the Regiment directly. Some interesting events which happened to me were; during the month of Ramadan (Muslim Holy period, during which all Muslims fast during during daylight and feast and make merry...

Re: Living History !

Hi All Although this is not a segment of my book relating to the 14/20H, this is a teaser from the book. I will however paste a segment of my time in the Regiment in the next few days. It happened as follows: 3 RUC constables and I were enjoying a quiet break in a night of patrolling, and were sitti...

Re: Living History !

Hi Bill and all, I would imagine in the age of tech that NOAH's Arc will be a huge source of anecdotal stories for any Historian who wants to write the 'official' history of the magnificent 14th/20th King's Hussars. Me personally, I have been writing 'my' story for several years now. It was original...

Re: Would like some help. Forgotten

Mick, thanks for that but I was asking for the solution to a specific solution. My problem seemed to be that I was writing a long, long submission, as is my want, together with Bill, but I don't type as fast as I used to, consequently it takes a while. It is most frustrating, having spent so much ti...

Pinky, I think "Corrected" would do just as well. So would, but the speed I run at now I am afraid I would just be cannon fodder.
