      The War

      The War

      You could well be right, with modern war television coverage just tends to see big guns firing off towards towns and planes dropping bombs on towns and a pillar of smoke, we dont tend see see the people under those explosions the thought of it is enough. With what was shown in ww1 ww2 was I think is more graphic like wise the Falklands it was brought right into our own homes my good friend and work colleague was there. War on line games players is I hope the closest they ever come to it as said war is horrible..but gaming is far removed from the real thing. I have been to Douaumont Ossuary a few times and the scale of loss is shuddering and quite overwhelming. MM

      Quite right my opening post was too harsh and ###### people off and I apologies for that , I should have worded it differently what I should / meant to have said was instead of having anniversaries through the year it should be kept to Remembrance Sunday as that is for me is the biggie which brings many from all over the world together in a time of thought and reverence and for some who are still kicking a time to meet up. Please remember my grandfather and father fought those wars and I still have their medals left to me. What I don't want is war anniversaries becoming too matter of fact an every day thing, as I have said Remembrance Sunday is their perfect day for such like...sorry if people have been offended. MM

      I think war is a horrible thing to watch with old war footage we saw what happened, and what my father told me about the things he had to see and endure didnt sit right with me. Yes it had to be done yes they were all brave people and some never returned which is a shame, but I think once a year for remembering is enough other wise it get too much. MM

      I have spoken to colleagues at work about this, some feel the same as me and some don't. I think Remembrance Sunday is enough once a year. MM

      Is it only me who is fed up with remembering the war...75th D day landings shortly. I am over 60yrs old I have lived the 2 world wars through television and war films all this time . My father served in WW2 through Africa and Italy and my grandfather WW1 in France they were quite happy to forget what they did and saw ...is it me...when is enough enough the 200th anniversary . MM.
    10. I know what you mean, an ex of mine once asked me what can you cook in a Beetoven, I looked at what she was trying to read and said nearly there luv but Beethoven was a composer. what can you say..😐 MM
    11. Mine was a 1970 Hillman Avenger 1500 super, my fathers hand me down when he'd had enough of it. Family 1st car a 1967 Morris 1100 as we had bike and sidecars for donkeys years. That little car took me my best friend and mother and father with full camping equipment through France over Switzerland and down to Pescara in Italy our average speed was 50mph when we got back it had to have a de-coke...those were the days. MM
    12. I'm looking forward to it I hope we win....its going to be a tough ole game also really glad at the mo that Italy aren't that good yet as I'm Welsh Italian I might be dead before that game comes round 😃. All the best to both teams but..two teams enter one team leaves. cheers MM
    13. Do you think you will try the rivers near you or just stick with the stillwaters. Cheers MM
    14. I started tying flies for my salmon fishing seatrout "sewin and and browns and now bass back in 1974 and I am am still tying them now, my advise is never start coz once you start you wont stop and end up like me with boxes stuffed with the things....but there is the very big buzz with rising a trout on your newly tied dry fly and seeing it take off downstream. 😃 MM
