Re: the great escape

Thanks for that Bodge. I'm planning to tunnel out of Westhoughton as soon as the opportunity arises. Some useful bits of information there.

Now I wonder where that old pair of Granny's silk knickers went to !

Re: Orthopedic help for Ex Squaddies

Useful information that Mick.
I was advised by Jim Harrison to ask for a referral to a Prof Peter Kelly in Wigan NHS, I'm due to see him again on the 19th December. Hopefully, he might be able to pinpoint my mobility problem. He told me that he has virtually rebuilt Jim.
Keeping my fingers crossed.

Re: PM not working

Gallery seems to be working fine Bob, just advertised it on Facebook with a robbed image.
There are some bloody good submissions on there and it's a lot easier to find and view older submissions.
Just watch out for that robber on the Facebook sites to visit.

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

A few of us voluntarily helped conduct an inventory of the items held in the museum (about 12 months ago). We were informed at the time that a consortium was looking to take over the museum with a view to reopening it. Any enquiries I made since then were initially answered by "they are still negoti...

Bill

Does your suggestion help you "Lose" weight or make your weight "Loose" ? Can't imagine what carrying Loose weight would do for us.

Just me being pedantic.

Re: 1919 to 1939 do we never learn

Bill My point on the trilogy was not any current threat, but the waste of UK troops in a situation that could possibly have happened, initiated by a power hungry high ranking military commander. After all, the books are pure fiction and I'm sure the author didn't serve in an armoured regiment. Howev...

Re: 1919 to 1939 do we never learn

Read the fictitious trilogy by Harvey Black. The Red Effect, The Black Effect and The Blue effect. This trilogy portrays an attack on the West by the Soviets. 14th/20th armour is heavily featured. The scenario painted doesn't inspire any confidence in Western defences, and my conclusion was get out ...

Tony "Charlie" Cornes In Hospital

Charlie has been transferred from Blackburn General Hospital to Pendle Community Hospital, Marsden Ward where he is slowly recovering from a stress related problem.

If anyone is around that area, I'm sure he'd appreciate a visit and a different topic of conversation.

He was discharged being medically unfit after an accident in December 1936, with only the back pay he was owed. His accident was during a sports afternoon, when, so...
