      Shame there won’t be much more going on for the Falklands 30 thing, but I guess with the cuts and the Olympics operational tempo is ludicrously high at the moment.

        I am not surprised really, it isn’t “our” way is it? In some ways we are more cowed than the Germans concerning our history; especially our military history even when we were the ones trespassed against. I want a few more of the new books on the conflict but I am in hurry to get them. By chance I did pick up volume 2 of the official MoD history for the startling price of £25! I am saving that for this coming winter. Lastly I am being choosy with the deluge of TV programmes. Max Hastings is on BBC 4 this week. And the Military Channel has a programme featuring the Red and Green Life Machine with the man himself Rick Jolly.

        “Johnny”? I am far too old to even pass for a “Johnny”. I am firmly mired in “old fart”, proceeding apace towards “walking antique”. Or limping, in my case. 😀
