Re: Where are our Tanks

Mick,
I came to an answer to your question 'Is there a god out there somewhere?' It is a big fat, emphatic NO!!!!

Look after Marion and give her all our love. You keep yourself safe, although that seems to be a given, in your part of the country.

Re: Safe ?

Bill, It was a terrible, terrible event. Unfortunately/fortunately, depending on your view of these things, the rhetoric of all the pundits on the TV news in Australia seems to be changing from Political Correctness to some of the language a redneck like me would use. So dreadful as it was some good...

Re: Where are our Tanks

Bill, Sammy and Mick, Oh! what pipe dreams we all have. Can anybody tell me how the neutral nations, Switzerland, Sweden and others managed it. What did they do to achieve such a status? Why can't the UK do it. Yes I know that these countries also have an Army, lets face it the Swiss Army all have k...

Re: Orwell and a bag of worms ...

Bill, in your last BIG post above you mentioned the ability of the Chinese to build cities in next to no time. Can't help equating them to ants. When I was there in 1971, looking over the border at any spot, possibly with the exception Lo Wu (where the Canton/Kowloon railway line went into China) an...

Re: interesting

I could not agree more with sentiments so eloquently put.
I had determined to never watch, or listen to these people again, but this gives me the right to be entertained so I can go back to my computer or TV.
BRAVO to whoever wrote this.

Re: NHS

Hi Sammy and all, unfortunately cant help you at all. Perhaps Ric can. Last time I left the country it was on a cruise liner from Fremantle to Fremantle. Despite the age(74) the excitement got to me and I wasn't watching the BORDER Control people, in or out. The only travelling I have done besides t...

Re: Trident

Hi Bill, Sammy and all, Just an aside from the main title of Trident. Is anyone familiar with, how did the actual shooting war start in August 1969? It was similar to the event which started the First World War. One bullet fired by Prinzep into the Austrian Archduke. This time it was one deserter fr...

Re: Trident

Hi Bill and Yall, Good on ya Bill. I have to agree with you wholeheartedly, yet again. Though I have a difficulty understanding the concept behind the statement "Our Country's security is paramount". Which country is threatening our security? Not Iraq, not Afghanistan, not Iran. Not anybod...

Re: They Spy.....

Bill, absolutely not. Would it not be an awful world if everybody HAD to agree with what we are told, and what we should do. Correct me if I am wrong, but was it not '1984' the book by George Orwell which described a world where Big Brother laid down the law about what you should think and do. So Vi...

Re: European Xmas

Hi Yall, I think I've already wished you all a MERRY XMAS and a Happy and prosperous NEW YEAR, but will repeat it again in the foregoing words. Bill, I agree with Sammy, except about religion, you should have gone into Politics. If you put the same efforts and intellect, into politics as you did you...

Re: Where has everybody gone

Mick, 58/59 Alec Prevett was RSM when RHQ was in Hohne by ityself. He was still around until the Guidon Parade in 1961 in Hohne. Bones Witney in this time was RQMS, certainly until we were in Benghazi.

Hi Yall, its all over but the shoo I mean shouting. Did anybody see the submission to F/B. Was a picture of Donald Trump and the caption at the top read "My President is a RACIST" and the bottom caption read "Good job Trump takes over in January". Absolutely true. When we get Chr...

Re: 1919 to 1939 do we never learn

Bill, agree 150%. All the people who denigrate Donald Trump, when questioned have to admit they have never listened to what he has to say. But I say he better look out for the guy on the 6th floor of any book stores he passes. He is going to upset an awful lot of people in the arms industries, just ...
