a BIG thank you

71 years ago to-day our Regiment was fighting the Japs in Burma and from the south coast of England the BIGGEST armada sailed to northern France to free Europe from Nazi rule . I personally would like to thank all those men and woman who went in harms way for us their children/grand children , their sacrifice and  courage will be never forgotten                                                                       THANK YOU ALL

Here Here Bob, I agree totally! All those taken from their homes to fight the common foe not just in 1914-18, 1939-45, but ALL wars fought by our citizens, deserve nothing less than the eternal gratitude of EVERY person living in peace in our nation today, and from those who are yet to come. It puts in true context the devious idiots of this world who deal only in crime of all sorts for personal gain. NOTHING can be more valuable than life itself, and those who fought, both male and female, deserve our everlasting thanks for putting country before self, knowing that at any time, they could lose their lives, yet fought on despite this threat to themselves. I only hope that I, if in their position, could have acted half as bravely as our forebears did, without question of their own safety.  May they rest in peace, and somehow know how grateful we are for their service.  Tom

  But for what, Bob?  The idiots in UK who daubed war memorials never thought that they could only do that because of those who served, either living or injured  or killed, creating the society which thrives in a common bond of  humanity. The idiots  are the losers, while our forebears are the heroes and heroines who made it possible for these idiots, brain dead, to do such abominable things  without punishment. Let us all praise our armed forces, and all those who served in the home environment for their fortitude and determination to win through. We are too soft with those who denigrate the service and sacrifice of our armed and civilian services who helped to defeat the common foe, and let us treat the nambie- pambie lunatic fringe with contenpt and revulsion. Cloud cuckoo land is their real home, not this world.
