General Discussion / D.Day June 6th 1944
« on: June 06, 2015, 01:11:40 PM »
SO! 70 years ago today, the day we trained for, planned for, and secretly dreaded, arrived, and `orf we go to do or die.
It may be a bit facetious, but how else can one approach all the horrors, the  injuries, and the deaths, brought about by that days eventual arrival ?
A thought please for all those who "Bought It", and will never leave French Shores again, for me, Cheers  Digger,Jock, Micko, and the many others now resting, in graves from North Africa, via Sicily, Italy, and the mainland of Europe via Normandy.   We all hope your sacrifice was not in vain.

General Discussion / Our Peggy
« on: May 22, 2015, 12:53:54 PM »


Under a shady date-palm tree, in a very pleasant Memorial Garden, out in Spain, is a quite nice Wooden Garden Bench.
On it is a Plaque with those words on it .
In its own way, it tells us all about Peg.
She  WAS  everybodies friend, and they in return , were all hers, this went, for wherever she traveled,  anywhere in the world.
Wherever she and I visited, and our mileage was very extensiive, she talked with people, and they became ,in turn , more friends.
There was a thread running through our lives,  DANCING,
it was the reason for our meeting initially, and had quite a bearing on our trips.
After a cruise, together, around the Cape, via Suez to Cairo,  where we were able to go to the El Alamein War Cemetary, for me to pay my respects to those of my lads there.   We talked, and it seemed a good idea, to use the visits to such places, as a basis for travels, and when a Caravan was mentioned, what better way to do the travel , that Peg had always wanted, but never been able to get to do.
Hey Presto!, and KINKI 1.  was bought, my Jag. swapped for a suitable tow car, a few additions, and alterations, for comfort, and convenience, and from there on we never looked back.
From Italy,across Europe, North African Coast, if it was reachable, we went, with whatever place we ate in at night vetted for DANCING, sometimes,in some quite unlikely places, but,  we danced. Always, whenever, or wherever, we danced.
Eventually we settled in our present Community Site at Los Gallardos, and when the time forced us, to give up our Camping ,took on a rather nice Mobile Home.
We and especially Peg, entered in to all Camp Activities.
Fancy Dress, Games, Talent Shows,  and Peg was always to be relied on.     Always in the lead, always available, always reliable.
In time Peg, was known as, and called, the Dancing Queen, a title much deserved, and one she was most proud of.
The extent of her Popularity, came, when, on a Wednesday Games night, and her Ashes were brought to the Casa.
A spontaneous wish for it to be possible for the shocked Camp, plus many outside visitors, to pay their respects to her memory, and the Bush Telegraph, plus Mobile Phones, made that evening in to a wonderful tribute to her, with her three much loved Daughters, able to grant, her many many times expressed wish, for her ashes to be placed where she had been so happy, in life.
This they did with a huge crowd attending. 
To be sure she would have approved it all. The immediate suggestion that a Bench to her Memory be put in to the Garden, so quickly contributed to, by all, and so heartily endorsed in the Camp Forum, pays its own tribute.
This I am quite certain, goes for us all.
We all pay our tribute to and express our love, t0.... OUR  PEGGY

The above Eulogy, will be rad out at this Sundays Remembrance Service.

General Discussion / Stella
« on: October 11, 2014, 05:15:12 PM »
For some quite unknown reason, we had never heard about Stella`s passing until today, and although it was  last Christmas, we feel we must just say how well her memory sits here.   We were ALL marshalled in to doing whatever was needed to make every thing ,Dance, Concert, Talent Show, Whist Drive,  or Whatever ? as successful as could be,  with NOBODY minding in the least.  A quite unique talent, and sadly missed when she went to live in U.K.  A quick look at some of the Pics. of that time show this statuesque lady,  all,  just as she will always be remembered.

General Discussion / League Tables for war
« on: September 26, 2014, 11:49:04 AM »
WHAT an interesting programme on BBC  ?
A geyser shewing all the luvly weapons we have on hand to go kill and maim people, probably in the new religious war about to start, which will almost certainly never have an. end.  It will be like saying "Put an end to Christianity, or Judaism,or any ism"  The Prog, was like a Football League chat, about the quality of the teams and the players, about to start a Football Season, with close ups of the footballs to be played with.
"Look at this wonderful Plane can fly to any place and send down these smashing rockets, and kill hundreds, even thousands, and all by pressing this little button here, and then this machine, with no pilot, can get through anywhere, and lay microphones, and we can hear all they say, while this plane is so quiet no one knows about it until after they are dead" ?
One would think that there will be a Referee, complete with Whistle, and Sidesmen to see fair play and no fouls, by the players, presumably, all on large transfer fees.
Ai`nt wars fun ?  and with INSTANT reporting of how many killed at one go, like flyswatting, with a `Gotcher` !
` Uman`s. !
p.s I am surprised, that anyone is surprised, that religious extremists, are flocking to U.K. and U.S.A. etc, to convert `christians` to their own `ism,  sorta getting their own back, our religious fanatics have been doing it for years, and years.
AND usng many of the same tactics, of fear, torture, repression and slavery, to spread "The Word".    WHATEVER that might be ?

General Discussion / History
« on: August 23, 2014, 11:32:48 AM »
In general, History has a habit of repeating itself.
With the `action` being taken in U.K. to halt the invasion of religious fanatics, intent on `converting`  Infidels` in  to `believers, from whatever  they believe in , to the fanatics religions,  does this all smack of the good  `ole crusaders and missionaries, going off to foreign parts to `convert` pagans to Christianity, by whatever means, including death, and torture.?????
WHY anyone in U.K. should be at all surprised, at the reciprocal, is not clear ?
It is after all only a repeat of `history` even tho` reversed,  propagatin of religion, whenever, wherever, whichever, always stirs up dire trouble.
Does the present situation call up   "Stable Doors" , even possibly "Enoch P." ?
vide NEWS    quite likely to continue for decades ?   SO !  What`s new ?
