Martyn and Jo I hope you've packed the girls rain gear ?
A whirling column of air and water mist provides a stunning sight off the Suffolk coast.

At 07.15 am GMT 80 years ago today, 11th July 1936. Captain Charles William Henry "Cecil" Bebb ex-RAF and a member of MI5 & MI6 set off from Croydon Airport in a de Havilland Dragon Rapide bound for the Canary Islands.
He and his travelling companions mission was to transport General Franco from the Canaries to Spanish Morroco so as to be at the head of Spanish Army in Morroco for the start of the coup to overthrow the democratically elected Spanish Government.
For 80 years the British Government and Intelligence services have denied any knowledge or involvement. #SpanishCivilWar80

#Fridaynightrickshow  For Jo who's feeling poorly
I've been up to Villiers Terrace
I've been in a daze for days
I drank some of the medici-i-i-ine
And I didn't like the taste

Ubique
"Once a gunner always a gunner stand easy now with love and respect from all ranks who served in 45 field regiment."
And thats how we honour heros
Standing room only at funeral of World War Two soldier after appeals are made on social media.

The hillsides ring with "Free the people"
Or can I hear the echo from the days of '39?
With trenches full of poets
The ragged army, fixin' bayonets to fight the other line

Introducing the Prime Sinister, she's a mother to us all
Like the dutch boy's finger in the dyke her arse is in the wall
Holding back the future waiting for the seas to part
If Moses did it with is faith, she'll do it with an army

Dear National Union of Teachers, thanks to your recent one day strike I'm now forced to eat this lush slice of triple chocolate cake.
My next door neighbours kids whom I looked after for the day didnt like cake?
Get your priorities straight! Kids must like cake

Amateur European Military Historian 1932-46
Introduction

Happily Divorced  I worked in Insurance in Leeds doing various roles. My hobby ,no obsession is European Military History 1932-46 and am into Military Archaeology and preservation of sites in the UK which I research and I also wargame Map Sim. by email with similarly minded folk. In the Map Simulations we role play the Generals and ranks above and try and replay Campaigns in the past but with our own personal touch, we also try recreate Campaigns that did not leave the planning table
